The Canon Snappy 20 is a simple and elegant point-and-shoot introduced in 1982. The Snappy 20 and its slightly more sophisticated sibling, the Snappy 50, earned a good review in the September 1982 issue of Popular Photography:
"In this case, the name says it all. “Snappy” surely refers to the legions of cartridge- and disk-camera snapshooters that Canon hopes to lure to 35-mm with these inexpensive, highly automated models. Quite compact and rather handsome in a plastic, space-age fashion, the Snappies have a heavily checkered, contoured right side that makes hand holding a, er .. . snap. Operation requires a bare minimum of attention, although it is not quite as “decision-free” as with the Kodak Disc models. ... For their intended audience of previously uncritical picture-takers, the Snappy cameras should be a revelation. The combination of (comparatively) huge 24x36-mm negatives and cleverly designed cameras should give much sharper, finer-grained prints than these snapshooters are used to."
This camera requires two AA batteries (not included).
Condition notes The camera was tested with batteries and film installed and all functions are working correctly (the film was not developed however). The camera is in good aesthetic condition for its age (see photos).
