A March 1995 model from Canon's very successful Sure Shot range, the Sure Shot Del Sol - known as the Prima Sol in continental Europe and Autoboy SE in Japan - was the world's first camera using solar energy for all its power requirements.[1] Its front was covered with a solar panel that recharged an internal lithium ion battery. Other than the ground-breaking technology, the functionality and specifications of the Del Sol were similar to those of the Sure Shot M, a compact camera with a wide-angle prime lens.
