Kodak's VR35-Series was a line of 35mm point-and-shoot cameras, introduced in 1986, marking Kodak's return to making 35mm cameras after a 17 year gap. The range continued until 1993. They had varying degrees of sophistication, ranging from the basic fixed focus models, with one aperture, no built-in flash and manual wind, to models with motor drive, programmed auto exposure and autofocus. Manufacturing sites included Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand and Taiwan.
