Canon SureShot Classic 120 -- A 35mm Color Film Secret
28 June 2010
Summary: These are amazing cameras and represent the pinnacle of automatic 35mm film camera development in terms of how easy they are to use and how simple they are to load. The back of the camera is opened, the 35mm film cartridge is dropped in, and after the camera back is latched shut the film speed is automatically read as coded on the film cassette. The film is then advanced to the first shot by a motor.
Summary: This is a slick little point and shoot by Canon. I've only shot one roll with it, all on the "Auto" setting, but the pictures came back very nice, even though the film I used was 4 years old. It is very small, very light, and nearly silent in use. I have a number of quiet rangefinders, but this one truly approaches silence. Remarkable. I wish I had gotten the user manual with it.
Summary: I returned to shooting film in January of 2008. At an assignment in Utah last February, my best picture came from an old Nikon 300 point and shoot that I had not used in 10 years. This got me thinking, what level of sophistication had the last of the P&S cameras reached? After spending some time on Canon's web site and after reading the specifications I came to the conclusion that much of the technology from my Canon EOS Elan SLR, had found its way to the P&S cameras.
Summary: Camera is compact, easy to use. The lens is sharp with great color. If you need a small 35mm camera to take pictures that has wide angle to a moderate 120mm telephoto capability; this is the camera to get. Only minor drawback is that the recommended film speed is 400 asa; however, with Kodak 400 HD print film the results were spectacular. There is also a built in flash. Loading film is also easy.
Summary: I had this camera for many years when I accidentally dropped it while on vacation. I was heartbroken! Canon no longer makes this model, so I was afraid I would have to settle for a lesser quality camera to replace it. Then, luckily, I found one on eBay. I was thrilled!! I didn't want any other camera -- I WANTED THIS ONE! Why? It's the perfect camera!
