The Canon Autoboy Luna is the Japanese version of the Sure Shot Z70W, a sophisticated 35mm point-and-shoot from the mid-1990s. The Autoboy Luna adds LCD focus confirmation symbols to viewfinder and a panorama mode that are missing from the Z70W but they're otherwise functionally equivalent.   

Famed celebrity/society photographer Patrick McMullan described his use of Z70W camera in the August 1997 American Photo

Since McMullan carries just one SLR, he packs a point-and-shoot for backup. He says his Canon Z70W, now discontinued, "is the best pocket model they ever made. I like the clamshell design because it protects the lens and makes it easier and faster to turn on the camera." Most essential is the Z70W's 28mm wide-angle focal length, uncommon among zoom point-and-shoots. "I keep the camera on a table when I'm sitting, just to snap people around me," he says. (Other point-and-shoots in his arsenal include the Contax T2 and the Olympus Stylus.)

This camera requires a CR123 battery (optional). A Canon case is included as is a wireless remote control that attaches to the camera's strap. 

Condition notes
All camera features were tested with a battery and film installed (the film was not developed) and it is working great. We confirmed the camera's film plane focus accuracy with an autocollimator; we could see that the lens' resolving power was superb for a zoom point-and-shoot. In addition, we verified the camera's auto-exposure accuracy using a calibrated light source and a shutter tester (its accuracy is excellent). The camera is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos) except for some dust in the viewfinder (this does not affect photos). The case is in fair condition, its velcro is weakly attached.
