Chronology of cameras Chinon 

Perhaps running out of ideas, Chinon adopted a new naming convention for its models starting in 1986. These are now called "Auto," followed by a number ending in 1.
All of these are motorized compact cameras with autofocus and flash. They differ in their lenses and the presence of an automatic framing system.

The first models in this new series still have a design very similar to the last Chinon 35 models, with angular shapes and a flash dependent on the protection cover. The subsequent models become more rounded, following the trend of the time.

Chinon presented this model in Cologne in 1986 during Photokina. It is a simple camera that handles most operations: film loading, advancing to the first frame, rewinding at the end of the film, DX coding, and automation ensured by the light meter.

Just the usual features for that time.
