The Canon Prima Mini (aka Sure Shot M) is a very compact 35mm point-and-shoot featuring a sharp 32mm f3.5 lens. 

This camera requires a CR123 lithium battery (available as an option). A blue Canon case and the original manual are included.

Condition notes

We film tested this camera and it delivered sharp, correctly exposed photos. All functions are working correctly. The camera is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos) with minor wear from use. The battery door is somewhat prone to popping open (only a minor inconvenience because it doesn't hold the battery under tension) but we found a small piece of double-stick tape is sufficient to prevent this from happening.
