The Canon Sure Shot Owl is a 1997 model from Canon's very successful Sure Shot range. This compact 35mm film camera was known as the Prima AF-8 in continental Europe. It was notable for having a large and bright viewfinder and a mode dial on the front of the body, with the dial being the main difference from the Prima AF-7. A fixed focus version, the BF-8, was based on the same body. It also formed the basis of the waterproof AS-1/WP-1.
