The Canon Sure Shot BF (aka Prima BF-9S) is a very simple, fully automatic 35mm point-and-shoot camera from circa 2000 that features an unusually bright and large viewfinder.

Here's the description from the Canon Museum: "This member of the esteemed Big Finder (BF) series of compact cameras is the fixed-focus sister camera of the Sure Shot PF/DATE / Prima AF-9S/DATE.

Except for the fixed-focus lens and the flash, the specifications are basically the same as the Sure Shot Owl PF/DATE / Prima AF-9S/DATE. "

This camera requires two ordinary AA batteries (not included). 

Condition notes
All camera features were tested with a battery and film installed (the film was not developed) and is working great. The camera is in good cosmetic condition except for some worn off paint on the the side of the camera (see photos). The original case is included.
