Canon Sure Shot WP: A nice surprise!


A quick review about this camera that amazed me in such a short time!

Knowing that summer was approaching, I started researching on the internet about underwater cameras. I love taking pictures on the beach without worrying about sand, water, and still having the chance to shoot at sea. Obviously I was on Ebay’s site, where film cameras can be bought for such a low price, and ended up running into this baby. For only $6.99!

It is basically the most automatic camera I’ve ever used, very practical. Waterproof, has a light meter, and four modes:

1. Flash Off
2. Flash On
3. Auto Eye Correction
4. Macro

And best of all, has a wide-angle 32mm f/3.5 lens. This combination makes wonderful pictures, with results that are often confused with a Lomo LC-A +.

So this is my first roll with the Canon Sure Shot WP, a cross processed Velvia.

An here some photos at the sea:

I highly recommend you to purchase this camera. It is very inexpensive and it’s giving me lots of fun!

    You're right, a great automatic camera! :)
    I have the same in the european A1 version, but it's really the same. And it's great for underwater as well... check all my Canon sureshot A1 albums on my home :)

    This camera is an absolute gem. I was looking for an underwater camera and also chose this one after all the reviews raved about it. It's amazing in every way, so easy to use, great features and the clarity of pictures both above and below water is brilliant. I got mine for £9 on ebay. Check out my short album here…

    Great review!
