Canon Epoca 35mm Film Camera Point and Shoot
The Canon Epoca is an oddly-shaped 1990 model from Canon's very successful Sure Shot range. It is shaped more like a video camera. This 35mm film camera was known as the Photura in America and Autoboy Jet in Japan. It has a 35-105mm zoom lens, and a powerful built-in flash. While not a true SLR, this was Canon's answer to the "bridge camera" market segment that competitors such as the Chinon Genesis had launched in the late 1980s.
In the real-time mode, the shutter release time lag (the time it takes for the shutter to release after the shutter button is pressed) is only 0.018 sec. This fully automatic autofocus camera features high-performance specs with four picture-taking modes and the fixed-magnification mode which keeps the subject size constant in the viewfinder.
In 1992, Canon introduced a follow-up model - the Photura 135 - which came with a 38-135mm lens.
This early '90s film camera is ideal for beginners, amateurs and professionals. It’s in excellent condition and is ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.
