TheGenesisseries fromChinonhelped define the the late 1980s and early 1990s category of 35mm "bridge cameras." These were models offering more advanced features associated withSLRs(parallax-free framing and a well-specified zoom lens), but with "point & shoot" ease of use (autofocus,DX-codefilm-speed setting; motorized film transport). In attempting to launch a distinct market niche, the styling of the Genesis series might charitably be called "non-traditional"—an aspect shared by many of its peers such as theYashica Samurai, theRicoh Mirai,Canon Photura, etc.
The Genesis series went through four model revisions during its production history, beginning in 1988 and extending through the early 1990s.
