It's utterly worthless. Worse in fact, as it costs money to have rubbish collected. if you try to sell it online then the sales fees usually exceed what the camera gets and that's IF the camera actually sells.
It's a very cheaply made all plastic camera designed as an impressive looking giveaway item by catalogue companies and similar organisations. The camera comes in an impressive looking box covered with apparently high tech claims and purports to be a "professional" camera. Style-wise, the camera is designed to look like a motor driven 35mm SLR camera to anyone who knows absolutely nothing about cameras.
In practice they're often purchased in bulk for next to nothing and then sold on various auction sites, mostly they fail to sell but there is the occasional victim who buys one and some very unwise folks who pay a lot for them.
I haven't seen many Matsui Kit 3006's yet, but until earlier this year the market was flooded with the equally dreadful Olympia DL2000A and I suspect that the Matsui is basically the same bit of tat with a new name.
If you've bought one then I'm sorry to tell you that you've just thrown your money away. I've had to do the same to countless folks who have previously brought me their Olympias hoping I'd buy them and it's never a pleasant task. Unfortunately you can't even give them to children as toy cameras as they're too fragile and have parts which easily fall off to leave dangerous exposed components such as the highly charged flash capacitor.
I hope that my answer has been of use and has prevented you from wasting your money. If I'm too late, then all you can do is chalk your loss up to experience. Either way, I hope that you can take my reply in the spirit in which it's intended and that you return the favour by rating my answer.
Return the camera to the company and see if you can get a return or at least an even exchange. Get another roll of film and shoot casual stuff. Never test a camera, film or digital for the first time at any mission critical event like an anniversary or wedding. It can lead to potential disaster. Shoot the roll with the new camera if you got it exchanged and then have it developed at Walmart or wherever is cheapest. If it works, keep it. If not, don't. BTW, if you are ever going to have to shoot a wedding or anything ever again with a film point and shoot and don't want hassles, just get disposable cameras. They are designed to work out of the box with no problems. They are of higher quality then most people think for image qulity.
Polaroid used to make good instant cameras, but their 35mm film and digital stuff I wouldn't trust as much. It's not the real Polaroid which can makes only instant film gear. . It's another company using the Polaroid brand name to try and make otherwise generic stuff look better then it is. Their digital cameras have a poor reputation. I don't think their non instant film cameras are much better. Good luck.
