The Canon Snappy EL (called the Prima Junior in other countries) is a basic but good quality 35mm point and shoot with fixed focus plus a dedicated macro mode (focuses at 50cm). Here's the description from the Canon Museum:

Fully automatic compact camera with a behind-the-lens mechanical shutter, single shutter speed of 1/125 sec., and a single focal length. For exposure control, a program sets one of three aperture settings to suit the shutter speed and lighting conditions. At ISO 100/200 in ambient light, f/8 is set. When flash is used, f/3.8 is set. And for the macro shots, f/16 is set.

This camera requires two AA batteries (not included).

Condition notes
The camera was tested with batteries and film installed and all functions are working correctly (the film was not developed however). The camera is in somewhat worn aesthetic condition (see photos) but the lens is very clean. The original case is included.
