Note: this camera has some tarnish on one of its battery contacts (see the last photo) due to a leaky battery. We cleaned and treated the contact with the non-toxic DeOxit 100L corrosion inhibitor. This tarnish didn't affect the camera's functionality at all in our testing.

The Canon Snappy S is a simple and stylish fixed-focus 35mm camera from 1985. This camera includes it original case. It requires 2 AAA batteries (not included).

Here's the description from the Canon Museum:

"Fully automatic 35mm Lens-Shutter camera with fixed-focus, built-in flash, and an electromagnetic programmed shutter and aperture. The 35mm f/4.5 lens has 3 elements in 3 groups.
The reversed Galilean viewfinder has yellow projected frames. A battery check and camera-shake warning is within the image area.
Film loading, advance, and rewind are automatic. Two size-AAA batteries power the camera. The camera came in red, yellow, green and black."

Condition notes
The camera was tested with batteries and film installed and all functions are working correctly (the film was not developed however). Apart from the already mentioned battery contact tarnish, the camera is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos).
