Another of the many Sure Shot cameras that Canon made. In Europe this was known as the Prima 4, and in Japan as the Autoboy Lite 2. I got it when a friend gave me a box of old cameras that she was retiring from service.

This one has an interesting feature for this type of camera: it's got a 2 to 4 shot burst mode on a single shutter press. The Canon Camera Museum claims it's good for group shots. Huh? I'd think it would be good for action.
