The Canon New Sure Shot is a superb 35mm point-and-shoot from the early 1990s. It's a dual focal length model, offering both a standard 48mm and an unusual and very useful 28mm wide angle. In both focal lengths the camera produces sharp photos with good contrast (the last two images are test shots at 48mm and 28mm respectively).
This same camera was known as the Prima Twin in Europe and the Autoboy WT28 (World Traveller) in Japan, where it saw its greatest popularity. The Japanese version includes a travel alarm clock which was not implemented in the North American New Sure Shot.
This camera requires a CRP2 lithium battery (available as an option).
