Note: This camera has a small crack on the front (see photos) around the lens tube. We film tested the camera on a sunny day and we couldn't detect any light leaks or other issues resulting from this cosmetic imperfection.

Released in 1996, the Sure Shot Z135 is one of Canon's most advanced 35mm point-and-shoots. It features a sophisticated zoom lens (38-135mm f/3.6-8.9 made with 10 elements in 9 groups) and a plethora of features.

The Sure Shot Z135 was favored by famed fashion photographer Roxanne Lowit, she told American Photographer (July 1999),"I take it everywhere with me— all the time. I carry it in my bag, so I hopefully never miss a moment."

This camera requires two CR123 batteries (available as an option).

Condition notes
We tested this camera with film and it delivered sharp, correctly exposed images. As mentioned above, the camera does have a chip on front of the camera (see photos) but it appears to be only cosmetic as the test photos were free of light leaks or other issues.
