The Canon Prima Tele, known as Sure Shot Multi Tele in America and Autoboy Tele 6 in Japan, is a twin-focal length autofocus compact camera from 1988. A switch on the back turns the camera on and off as well as selecting between the wide angle and telephoto lens configurations. A matched tele converter was also available, extending the tele length to 75 mm. Another stand-out feature is the support for half frame format, activated by a switch inside the film chamber (it is therefore impossible to switch between formats mid-roll).
