The Canon Sure Shot 130u (aka Prima Super 130) is an ultra-compact 35mm point and shoot from 2002. This camera is something of an engineering marvel with its wide-ranging, sharp, and contrast-y 38-130mm zoom in such a light and tiny package.

We're quite familiar with this camera, having happily used one as our main compact camera for a few years, and the only (minor) complaint we have with it is that the viewfinder is a bit on the small side. 

The Sure Shot 130u requires a CR2 lithium battery for power (optional). It supports an exceptionally wide range of film speeds (ISO 25-3200) but Canon recommends the use of ISO 400 film for general photography with this camera.

Condition notes
The camera is in excellent functional and aesthetic condition. We tested all functions with film installed (we did not develop the film however) and the film plane focus accuracy on an autocollimator (the lens showed exceptionally good resolving power/sharpness for a point-and-shoot zoom).
