The Canon Sure Shot Z70W is a superb 35mm point-and-shoot from the mid-1990s featuring a sharp 28-70mm zoom lens and very sophisticated autofocus.

Famed celebrity/society photographer Patrick McMullan described his use of Z70W camera in the August 1997 American Photo

Since McMullan carries just one SLR, he packs a point-and-shoot for backup. He says his Canon Z70W, now discontinued, "is the best pocket model they ever made. I like the clamshell design because it protects the lens and makes it easier and faster to turn on the camera." Most essential is the Z70W's 28mm wide-angle focal length, uncommon among zoom point-and-shoots. "I keep the camera on a table when I'm sitting, just to snap people around me," he says. (Other point-and-shoots in his arsenal include the Contax T2 and the Olympus Stylus.)

This camera requires a CR123 battery (optional). A Canon case is included.

Condition notes
All camera features were tested with a battery and film installed (the film was not developed) and it is working great. We confirmed the camera's film plane focus accuracy with an autocollimator; we could see that the lens' resolving power was superb for a zoom point-and-shoot. In addition, we verified the camera's auto-exposure accuracy using a calibrated light source and a shutter tester (its accuracy is excellent). The camera is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos).
