Question about Cameras

I have come across my Dad's Canon Sure Shot z135 caption camera and I'd like to use it. By chance, are there any instructions and film to be had? Sentimental reasons.

A camera with a good ol' roll of film is very different from the versatile digital cameras (and even cell phones) available today.
Yes, you'll need film. You'll need to chose an ISO (which is something that is merely a setting on digital devices), so it depends if you will want to shoot by day, night, still objects, moving objects, etc... A higher ISO will make you more versatile, but will also add more grain to the picture (which could be a wanted effect).

I suggest you carry it into a specialized camera store and they'll be able to help you discover your dad's camera.

SOURCE: Canon Sure Shot 105 ZOOM ~TOTALLY LOST ~need any instructions I can get.

The flashing H means hat the camera has detected a hardware fault on starting up. It can also mean that the film has mis-loaded. Try removing the film & then the battery to reset it. Put the battery back & switch on. If it's still doing it then I'm afraid it's got the 'flashing "H" of Doom'. Although this is repairable, it's usually not economically viable.
