FS: Canon Elph2 IX 240 APS Camera


TRIBE Member
I got an APS film camera that I barely use so I want to get rid of it. It's tiny so it's great for carrying around anywhere. Comes with Camera (of course), original box, leather case, strap, manual, warranty card (probably useless since I don't have the original receipt). I still have the original battery that it came with, but you'll probably have to get a new one. It shouldn't cost more than $5-7, but I'll throw in a new roll of Kodak Advantix 400 APS film so that should cover some of the cost.

Asking: $100

Now for some pics:

The package





Below are the specs:

Canon's ELPH2 continues the Canon tradition of pushing the technology envelope another step further. This ingenious camera actually does a lot of the thinking for you! As the smallest zoom lens-equipped, Advanced Photo System camera, Canon's ELPH2 gives you a choice of three unique print formats: panorama, wide-angle, and classical traditional sizes. Its precision 23-46mm 2x power zoom lens allows you to get as creative as you want to be in composing your shots. You know you want your photos to be as color-accurate and realistic as possible, and Canon's exclusive Hybrid Autofocus keeps all of your photos remarkably sharp.

Canon's state-of-the-art Print Quality Improvement (PQI) allows the ELPH2 to ingeniously communicate with your film, recording shooting data such as lighting, exposure and flash for the most accurate photo reproduction available on the market today. In other words, your photos will turn out exactly the way you intended them to! The ELPH2 is a paradox in camera technology, with big ideas all coming in a very small package!
