This is an interesting and high quality 35mm film camera in Canon's Sure Shot/Autoboy series. The Sure Shot Tele Max features a nice dual lens configuration where you can switch between wide (38mm f/3.5 with 3 elements in 3 groups) and telephoto (70mm f/6 with 6 elements in 6 groups) modes.
Like the single lens Sure Shot Max, this camera features a simple three-way switch on the back to control the flash (Flash/No Flash/Red-eye reduction); this is great if you want to prevent the flash from going off (like when taking photos on the sly at a museum).
The Tele Max requires a CR123A lithium battery (available as an option).
