It is a pleasure to use, assuming you have no issues with auto-only operation, thanks to its exceptionally large viewfinder which makes composition so much easier than most of the other P&S cameras.
It also boasts one of the wider lenses - a 30mm f6.4 - instead of the more usual 32mm, 35mm or 38mm lenses. Aimed at the novice, it has a feature which seems exclusive to this model - a ridge carefully positioned to warn the photographer that their fingers are about to cover the flash. The flash employs Yashica's BBS system to help eliminate both the need for pre-flash and red-eye; it also has a 10s self-timer. With its 2 AA batteries inside, the camera weighs a mere 212g but feels substantial which is reassuring.
This camera actually feels as good in the hand as the T5 and is only marginally heavier (by 8g) and slightly deeper than that star of Yashica's P&S range of cameras.
