The Revue 300 TW is a simple plastic camera for 110 film, made in Hong Kong and distributed by Foto-Quelle in Germany from 1991.
It has a single shutter speed and no aperture control.
A sliding switch at the bottom of the camera body moves an extra lens in front of the fixed focus lens creating a moderate tele lens effect. This change in perspective can also be seen in the viewfinder and probably explains the TW in the name of the camera; TW for Tele and Wide.
Two AA-batteries are used to fire the electronic flash which can be turned on and off with the switch directly above it. When turned on an indicator light in the middle of the switch turns orange when the flash is ready for firing.
