The Canon Sure Shot 80u (AKA the Prima Zoom 80u) is an ultra compact 35mm film camera from the early aughts. Like the rest of the Sure Shot 'u' series, this camera is a marvel of miniaturization, offering excellent image quality and a good amount features in a tiny package. It features a 38-80mm f/4.7-9.4 zoom lens (six elements in six groups) which is surprisingly sharp and versatile to find in such a compact point-and-shoot.

The Sure Shot 80u is also an ideal camera for people who like to use a variety of film types as it supports metering a very wide range of speeds (ISO25 to ISO3200). 

The Sure Shot 80u requires a CR2 lithium battery for power (optional).
