The Canon Sure Shot Zoom S is a quality 35mm point and shoot from the late 1980s. This camera requires a 2CR5 lithium battery (optional). 

Here's the description from the Canon Museum:

The AF system uses the 3-point Smart Autofocus with a near-infrared beam. It enables focus to be achieved even with a subject near the edge of the picture area.

The 38-60mm f/3.8-5.6 zoom lens has 6 elements in 6 groups and power zooming. The full auto program mode uses 3-zone metering with a composite SPC.

Condition notes
All camera features were tested with a battery and film installed (the film was not developed) and it working great. The camera has some minor cosmetic wear (see photos) and some minor black specks of dust in the viewfinder (these do not affect photos). We tested the camera's film plane focus on an autocollimator and it is very sharp. The original manual is included.
