The Autoboy 155, the flagship model of Canon’s 35mm Autoboy compact-camera series, incorporates a high-performance 37-155mm 4.2x zoom lens in a body measuring only 112 x 59.5 x 48.3mm, making it the smallest camera in its class. Also featuring a robust yet elegant aluminum front casing accented with a cool-green finger grip, the new Autoboy 155 achieves a sophisticated appearance denoting high-quality and precision workmanship.

The Autoboy 155 makes possible finer exposure control and precise focus performance by linking focusing and exposure control to the zoom and focusing points. A large Best-Shot dial on the back cover facilitates easy operation and optimum exposure in all conditions.

The Autoboy 155 also offers a manual exposure compensation of +/-1.5EV, a dioptric adjustment knob at the viewfinder, and a large easy-to-see LCD operating panel, with clear and simple displays, for added user convenience and trouble free operation.
