The 790 camera is the same as the 636 Close-up camera except for product name, cosmetics, and modified “China” dual pack spring. This modified spring allows the camera to accept 600, 700, 779, 780, and 788 film.
Specific features include: a newly colorized body connoting youthfulness, spontaneity, and fun, new 790 name plus stylized logo on front plate, body instruction label indicating film type compatibility (600, 779, 780, and 788 films), and eye-catching new display box highlighting camera and “fun” usage across geographies and ethnicities.
