Hold on a second - I need to judge in here to determine if IronWing went outside the parameters and cheated by looking at the EXIF :p
The rules clearly and/or ambiguously state
If you guys can guess the camera model, or glean it from something, I will confirm or deny your guess.
:D
It's too bad the focal length isn't conclusive. Sensor size and crop factor would put it at ~35mm FF equivalent

The EXIF has some maker notes that exiftool couldn't read. The model number is likely buried in those.

Sony P50.
Sorry, I was...... away for a while.

Later I got the F717 but it was one of those with a bad sensor and god damn Sony didnt service it for me. I stopped buying their products for a while out of spite.
Until the a6400 which was actually a great camera EXCEPT for the tiny controls. I have small hands but it seems like most modern bodies are too small even for me.

Here is an pic of all my old Sony cameras, including my first one (upper right), the sony DSC-50 which I got around 2000/2001 I think...she actually still works. The one on the left is an RSC-1 (sold it), middle one is F-707 (still have it) and the last one on the right is an F-828 (sold it). All of these cameras used the same battery which was a very pleasant surprise. I currently have an A9 and an A7 RIV...
