The Canon Sure 115u (called the Autoboy N115 or Prima Super 115u II in Japan and Europe respectively) is a tiny yet highly capable 35mm point-and-shoot from 2003. With its small size and excellent image quality, the Sure Shot 115u is a near-perfect 35mm film camera for many people. If we had to reach for quibbles, it's a tad louder than some other cameras and maybe a bit more fragile than average (both of these things are trade-offs owing to its miniaturization).

Here's how it's described in the Canon Museum:

The developed Autoboy N115, which replaces the Autoboy LUNA 105S released in May 2001, features a high-quality zoom-lens unit incorporating an aspherical lens element. The aspherical element enables a more powerful 38-115mm 3.0x zoom lens to be housed within a lighter, more compact body measuring only 107.2 (w) x 58.7 (h) x 42.4 (d) mm about 70% the size of the previous model and effectively corrects for spherical aberration, ensuring exceptional imaging performance throughout the zoom range.

The slim design of the Autoboy N115 combines with an aluminum-coated front cover, a mirror finish lens-barrel ring, and an elegant lilac-colored metallic band, which encompasses the top, sides and bottom of the camera,to realize a sophisticated, high-quality appearance. At the same time, curved bodylines give the compact new model a soft, appealing look and enable it to fit easily and comfortably into the hand or pocket.

The Sure Shot 115u requires a CR2 lithium battery for power (available as an option).
