The Nikon L35TWAF (also known as Tele•Touch) is a compact camera for 35mm film, introduced as part of the L series, by Nikon in 1986. There is a version with an autodate function called the L35TWAD.
It is an auto-everything camera with autofocus, autoexposure, auto popup flash, auto film loading, auto advance and auto rewind. It uses a dual lens design that can be changed with the T and W switch. The wide lens is a 38mm f/3.5 4 element in 3 group while the tele lens is a 65mm f/5.6 8 element in 6 group. It uses a stepless infrared autofocus system which locks focus with a half press of the shutter release. In W mode it is able to focus from 0.4m while in T mode at 1.3m. When too close the camera emits a warning noise. The lens is protected with a lens cover that automatically uncovers when powered on. It is compatible with DX encoded film from 64 to 1600 ISO (in 64, 100, 200, 400, 1000 and 1600 ISO), non coded film will default to 100 ISO.
