Full Program CdS meter Battery: Built-in Popup Flash Manual: The history of this camera follows closely to that of the Canon AF35M which I have previously reviewed on this site. That review can be found here. Other changes were the larger and more prominent hand grip, an improved self timer, and a revised viewfinder.
It still would run on two Manaul batteries, had a popup flash, and no manua, control. The camera was completely automatic.
Perhaps this system helped keep costs low, or Canon really mxnual the system on the AF35M was unnecessary, but whatever the reason, Canon improved upon this camera with a larger and brighter lens, a larger and easier to use handgrip, but then crippled it with a less advanced auto focus system. When I first started collecting film cameras, my interest was limited to older, manual cameras. I had no interest in these plastic point and shoot models from the s.
As it turns out, using that camera was a manua, experience, and once I saw the first shots from it, my fondness for it grew. Almost every a35ml from that first roll came out very nicely. I was impressed that such a basic camera could produce such nice shots.
I thought, if this one can do a good manuall, why not try another? I won the camera as the only bidder. When it arrived, I was pleased to see that it was in great physical shape. The battery compartment had no corrosion and upon putting in two fresh AA batteries, the camera fired up and appeared to do everything it at35ml. I gave it a quick wipe down with some rubbing alcohol, loaded in some film, and took it with me on a family trip to Seattle.
Instead, you have equally useless LED indicators on mahual left side of the frame. Neither camera has automatic parallax correction, instead you have a second set of parallax lines for composing at close focus.
Also similar between the af35l cameras is the center autofocus indicator. Both cameras are limited in focusing on af3ml in the very center of the frame. If you want to focus on something that is not in the center, you must first have your focal point in the center of the frame, half press the shutter release button until ad35ml of the focus indicators lights up, and while still holding down the shutter release half way, move the camera to your desired composition.
The camera should retain focus on what was originally in the center of the frame. The manual kindly tells you to turn to page 20 of the manual af35mll read about these special circumstances. The image to the right shows the complete list of situations in which the AF sensor might have difficulty.
Many situations could fall into one of these categories. As for the rest of the camera, the experience is very similar to that of the AF35M, so you can read that review for more specifics. The popup flash here still has a very long recycling time like the earlier model. You need to wait for the flash ready light to illuminate before taking a picture. This is not a TTL Through the Lens camera, so you have to remember to take the lens cap off the camera before trying to use the camera.

Between the following 12 shots in this review, the film stock used was half fresh FujiColor and half expired Kodak Max The shots on the expired Kodak are noticeably more grainy and a tad underexposed, but I will not fault the camera for that.
The most impressive shot is the one of the man playing guitar while using a hula hoop at the same time. This was shot outdoors in bright sunlight with a moving subject. The landscape shot of the mountains at infinity also turned out nice.
The images are consistently sharp in the center and around the corners. The image to the left is a 1: The details of the baby holding the purple sippy cup are very strong. This lens is clearly quite good, and definitely better than ones found on most plastic point and shoot cameras from the s. I have many more shots than just these 6 that were out of focus. Some only slightly, but others were significantly out of focus.
I did not get a single indoor shot in focus from the 2 rolls I shot in af5ml camera. Not even the one of the bar above. I had the camera centered on the lady in the turquoise shirt, and nothing in this image is in focus. The thing is, this was a flat wall, with a mqnual consistent focal plane.
This image was shot in shadows, but they were very brightly lit outdoor shadows. There is no reason the camera should have csnon with this shot.
The Ferris wheel image has tons of vertical lines. Maybe you have to have only vertical lines, and no diagonal ones.

In the shot of the bicycles, I had the camera centered on the bikes near the back, yet none of them came out in focus. Perhaps, the most disappointing ones are the first two in the Seattle fish market. I love the composition of these, and had I used a more capable camera, these could have been highlights of the roll. Instead, nothing is in focus.
I do not understand how this camera can even be considered an auto focus camera when it is so easily tricked. The worst part is that Canon had a more capable auto focus system that most likely would have done better on most of these shots.
If it wasand I was in the market for an easy to use vacation camera that had a great lens and could take the guess work out of focusing, and I purchased this camera and seen these results, I would have not been happy. I figured that one of two things must be true here. Either, the expectations of what an auto focus system could do in is much less than what we expect today, or there is a chance something is wrong with my particular example.
This is a nearly 35 year old camera after all, so maybe I should be more forgiving. I have no reason to indicate that anything is wrong with my particular example, but maybe there is.

Page 20 of the manual describes a variety of situations in which the auto focus system might have trouble.

It has a comfortable and easy to hold body, runs on easy to find AA batteries, and when it works properly, shoots images that are sharp and beautifully rendered. The big issue here is the extremely disappointing auto focus system.
