The Canon Snappy AF is an easy-to-use auto-focus 35mm camera from the late 1980s. It features a sharp 35mm f4.5 lens (3 elements in 3 groups). 

The Snappy AF requires a 2CR5 6V lithium battery (optional).

Condition notes

All camera features were tested with a battery and film installed (the film was not developed) and is working great. We verified its focus and autoexposure are working with good accuracy.
