Here we have a fantastic condition Canon Sure Shot Zoom XL point-and-shoot 35mm film camera. This camera is fully functional and is ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.
The Canon Sure Shot Zoom XL (also called Autoboy Super Zoom in Japan and Super Prima Zoom in Europe) is a fully automated point-and-shoot film camera with exceptional optics and incredible versatility. It is a feature-dense machine that's capable of much more than the average point and shoot.
It's superlative feature must surely be its lenses, which are nearly unbeatable in this price point. When the Zoom XL was released it was widely regarded to have optics and image quality that was just as good as Canon's professional-level FD lens range, the lenses made for use on that brand's professional level F-1 SLR and Semi-pro A-1 and AE-1 cameras.
Testing proved this to be the case, with most camera publications lauding the Zoom XL for its ability to produce SLR quality shots in a smaller, lighter, and easier-to-use body.
The 39-85mm f/3.6-7.3 lens is an incredibly versatile piece of glass. It allows all types of photography to be achieved with ease. From landscapes to portraits, snapshots to street photography, this lens can do it all. It's impressive construction (9 elements in 8 groups) maintains exceptional correction of distortion and mitigation of all types of optical aberrations. Zoom is handled by way of a simple button press, and automation takes care of the rest.
The fully-automated nature of the camera allows for extreme ease of operation. Autofocus, automatic film advance and rewind, automatic exposure, and automatic flash create an ecosystem that's tailor-made for people who are interested in composition, framing, and artistic license, and not so interested in the complicated process of exposure calculations and manual focus.
The camera runs on one 6v 2CR5 battery, which is happily included.
This particular camera is in fantastic condition and will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
