Canon Sure Shot Telemax 35mm autofocus compact zoom camera, film-tested with 90-day warranty.
The Telemax is a zoom model in Canon’s diverse and much-loved Sure Shot range.
Also known as the Autoboy Mini T in the US, this camera was released in 1991 and features two focal lengths – either 38mm with a fastest aperture of f/3.8 and 70mm with a fastest aperture of f/6. The 70mm lens has six elements, making it very sharp. The two focal lengths are chosen with a slider switch on the front of the camera. The camera has a three-point autofocus system.
The camera has a flash which can be turned off if you want to shoot with a bit more creative control in lower light. The camera is DX-coded. The camera needs a CR123A battery to operate, which won’t be included with the camera. The battery compartment door does not snap close and may open when the camera is inverted but the battery is a very snug fit and won’t fall out. A small amount of electrical tape will keep it firmly closed. The camera is being offered at this cheaper price as a result.
The camera works perfectly and has been film tested. The accompanying gallery was taken on expired AgfaPhoto Vista 200 in June 2022.
The camera comes with a 90-day warranty (battery door fault notwithstanding).
