Although the AS-6 was part of Canon's low-cost Snappy series, it has retained cult appeal due to it being capable of shooting up to 10m (32.8 feet) underwater. This 35mm model has a fixed focus 35mm f/4.5 lens, program auto exposure, and motorized film transport. It has DX coding for ISO 100 or 400 film and uses 2 AAA batteries. The camera came with a cowing that surrounded the flash, viewfinder, and lens with a spot for mounting a large underwater viewfinder and a ¼” 20 thread tripod mount. It also has a shutter lock slide switch, frame counter, flash on/off switch, flash ready light near the optical viewfinder, and a handy carry strap with the lens cap attached. The camera was introduced by Canon in 1986 and at the time of this blurb Amazon still sold it used for $59.99.
