The Canon Sure Shot Zoom XL was released as the Autoboy Zoom Super in Japan and the Prima Zoom F in Europe for about $500 in 1989. The camera is a fully automatic zoom compact using an SPC (silicon photocell) for a triangulation AF system. The near-infrared beam for autofocusing is also used for AF assist in low light. Pre-focusing is possible. The 39-85mm f/3.6-7.3 lens has 9 elements in 8 groups and power zooming. The optical quality is comparable to Canon FD interchangeable lenses. A convenient, fixed-magnification mode is provided. The direct zoom viewfinder gives a clear image area. The built-in flash’s Guide Number is 11.8 to 14.4 (at ISO 100 in m). It zooms automatically to match the focal length. The shutter speeds range from 1/40 to 1/250 of a second and the zoom ranges from .42x to .81x magnification. The camera also has auto film advance, auto rewind, mid roll rewind, frame counter, LCD menu plus info screen, flash on/off button, auto flash in low light, 1/4” 20 thread tripod socket, and takes ISO 50 to 3200 DX coded film. The camera is powered with one 6 V 2CR5 lithium battery.
