The Canon Sure Shot AF-7S (sold as the Owl PF Date or Prima AF-9S in some countries) is a well-designed turn-of-the-millennium compact autofocus 35mm camera with a nice, sharp fixed 35mm f/3.8 lens. This camera requires two ordinary AA batteries (not included). In addition, the optional date imprinting function uses a CR2025 button battery (not included).

Here's the description from the Canon Museum:

"While having a single focal length lens, this member of the esteemed Big Finder (BF) series of AF compact cameras has a large viewfinder and is easy to operate.

All the elements in the bright 35mm f/3.8 lens are molded glass (GMo). The built-in flash is powerful, covering out to ten meters. The large viewfinder is easy to use, and an oversized shutter button and other controls result is a very easy-to-use camera."

Condition notes
All camera features (except the date mode) were tested with a battery and film installed (the film was not developed). We also verified the camera's auto exposure and auto-focus. There are some minor scuffs on the camera body (see photos) but this does not affect performance. The optional date imprinting mode requires a CR2025 lithium button cell (not included).
