Canon (New) Sure Shot, Canon Camera Museum states that it was marketed April 1983 as an improved version of the original Sure Shot which came out in November 1979 not to be confused with the 1990 Sure Shot that is also labeled New. The 1983 Sure Shot has a four element 38mm f2.8 lens. ISO from 25 to 400 set by a switch at bottom of the lens and seen in a window on top of the lens near the infra-red triangulation system for autofocusing. The camera uses two AA batteries, has a quick loading feature, self-timer, ¼” tripod socket, built-in electronic flash turned on by a switch on the back, and the camera was made in Japan. It is in good working and cosmetic condition. Purchased for $5 at a yard sale on 4/26/14 in Cape May New Jersey area. The price in 1984-85 in the Sears Camera Catalog was $149.99, or equivalent to $300 in 2014 money. There were 5 other camera names for this same camera AF35M II, AF35M II Quartz Date, Sure Shot Quartz Date, Autoboy 2, and the Autoboy 2 Quartz Date. All these cameras used the same instruction booklet published in 1982.
