CANON ELPH (IXUS in Europe, IXY in Japan) - 1996. The ELPH was Canon's first foray into shirt pocket-sized cameras and was the world's smallest autofocus zoom camera at that time. The body was designed by Yasushi Shiotani in such a way that it would not look out of place inside a lady's handbag, and also look attractive when worn around the neck.   APS film.   Shutter 2 to 1/500 th sec.   Lens 24-28 mm.   It was a very popular camera, partially due to its unique stainless steel case. Near mint condition samples can be found on eBay for as little as $5.
