Not a design classic — but it is charming I had specific requirements I wanted to fulfil for an upcoming self sufficient European bike trip and looking on my shelf, although close, nothing in my collection fully fit the bill. Worth too much, too temperamental, too heavy, too bulky, too precious. This is what brought me to the idea of a compact. After doing a lot of reading and listening to photography podcasts I knew that the prices for compacts had gone mad recently.

Not a design classic — but it is charming I had specific requirements I wanted to fulfil for an upcoming self sufficient European bike trip and looking on my shelf, although close, nothing in my collection fully fit the bill. Worth too much, too temperamental, too heavy, too bulky, too precious. This is what brought me to the idea of a compact.
After doing a lot of reading and listening to photography podcasts I knew that the prices for compacts had gone mad recently. But, I thought there must be something out there still that had a nice fixed focal length, a wide f2. After all, these seem to be the characteristics people are looking for in a compact of a certain vintage. So after a few nights looking on auction sites I came across this little beauty. Plus the owner had lovingly written a long and detailed description.
I was sold. The lens has a nice door which flicks open with the push of a button on the front and powers up the camera. And a sliding button closes it again. For something to feel like quality and be comfortable to use, I like a bit of weight and this with its massive 2CR5 battery this delivers.
I took a walk with the camera in the industrial areas around where I live purely to put a test roll through as quickly as possible I am known for taking weeks or months finishing film and overall I did enjoy using the Sure Shot.
Just line up the shot, half press to focus, recompose and fully press to take the shot. You see it does have its quirks. This is great for when you want to be a bit more conspicuous or you think the camera might have got the situation a bit wrong. The problem is, to do this you need to press the smallest button known to man situated on the base of the camera. You have to press and hold while you focus, compose and then take the shot.
And this is a little tricky. Secondly, and this is my biggest issue with the Canon Sure Shot Supreme. The shutter button is very numb. It just has no feel to it. Overall I do think this is a very solid performer. It has that sharp 35mm wide aperture lens. I spent very little money on it. Either way, I have a simple to use and reliable performer I really quite like that should serve me well while riding on the continent.
