They are a 35mm single focal length compact camera featuring an extra-large, easy-to-see viewfinder and introduced in 1998. The model’s large viewfinder offers three times the viewing area found in conventional compact cameras, allowing subjects to be seen with greater ease and clarity. The feature even enables users to take pictures while wearing eyeglasses as the entire image area can be viewed up to a distance of two centimeters from the viewfinder. A Mode Dial, located on the face of the camera, consolidates all of the operation functions at the user’s fingertips. The camera has a stylishly designed sleek black body and features the Canon logo in raised silver letters. This is the sixth model of the Canon BF (Big Finder) series, the first of which was launched in 1991.
