The Canon Sure Shot 80 Tele SAF 35mm Film Camera comes with a Canon 38/80mm 1:3.7/7.3 zoom Lens and a built in flash. It uses a CR123A 3V battery to power all its features. The camera was also known as the Prima BF Twin in Europe plus other areas, and the Autoboy BF80 in Japan. The camera is a fully automatic autofocus camera with a button on the front to instantly switch between the 38mm focal length (for snapshots and landscapes) and 80mm focal length (for portraits). The direct zoom viewfinder gives a clear image area. Camera operation is simple with a mode dial on the camera back. With Ai-AF autofocusing, the camera focuses at three points in the image area and then selects the main subject to be focused. The Autoboy BF80 also has a panorama mode (13x36mm) prefocus enabled. There is also an electromagnetic programmed shutter and aperture, date imprinting in all modes, auto film advance, auto rewind, frame counter, film ISO plus exposure view window, ¼”x ½” LCD mode screen, direct zoom viewfinder. 0.4x - 0.85x magnification with 84% coverage, flash ready LED in the viewfinder, built in lens cover, and a handy carry strap. Within the viewfinder is an image-area frame, AF frame, close-up frame, and panorama frame. It also has an OK-to-Shoot LED (green) that lights when focus is achieved, blinks for close-up warning, has a camera-shake warning, and turns off during flash recycling. The camera was introduced in 1995 for an original price of $310.00. This is 24,800 yen and yen was worth approximately 80 yen per dollar in 1995. Today 24,800 yen would come to $205.00 with it taking 121.09 yen to make a dollar.
