Halina 3000

I bought this camera from a charity shop, and I am not going to go into the price. Basically, it's a 35mm Halina 3000 that was made in Hong Kong. It has some sort of meter ranging from 7 to 17 on the top. On the bottom is a button (not entirely sure what it does, but perhaps it frees the back once the film is used) and a shot counter. There are 4 shots left.

 

The camera comes with a (presumably fake) leather case, which screws on at the bottom and remains attached during normal use. To keep the camera safe, the case folds back over the lens and fastens to itself.

 

On the shaft of the lens, there is a selector for what I presume is aperture: 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16. There is something else that goes B, 30, 60, 125, 250, which also changes a setting that reads 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13. Then there is something reading 'ASA' and 25, 50, 100, 200, 400. Finally is the focusing, which reads 3.5 feet, 5, 7, 10, 15, 30, infinity. At the end of the lens is printed 'Anastigmat 1:2.8 F=45mm F.C. Halinar.

 

I don't know if this means anything to anyone, but would anyone who sees this who has even the faintest idea about going prices for this sort of thing please suggest a possible end auction price for this? I'm expecting like maybe between £10 and £20, but just making sure I'm not making a mistake :-)

 

Thanks.
