Canon rangefinder camera winding lever!



at first

I’m sorry

Because we can’t speak english

I am using DeepL translate, so it may be a strange sentence,

but I would like you to understand

Thank you

The film winding lever is a function that is found only in rangefinder cameras and SLR cameras.

It is a function that must be operated after releasing the shutter to advance to the next frame.

In this article, we would like to focus on the film winding lever of Canon’s rangefinder released in 1961.

We will use the cameras on sale at our vintage shop Japan Inc.

Canon’s winding lever position for this age is on the bottom for some reason.

The lever is designed to stand on its tip for easy operation.

This looks like the top, but it’s the bottom!

And to my surprise, it even had a film rewind lever on the bottom!

For some reason, this Canon Canon Canonet has a winding lever on the bottom.

To my surprise, Canon SLR cameras of this era also have a winding lever on the bottom of the camera.

This is a unique feature of Canon.

Next time we’ll take a look at that bottom winding lever series of Canon film SLRs, so stay tuned!

In addition to the Rangefinder camera introduced this time, we also sell vintage cameras and lenses, anime goods, and radio cassette players, so please see the URL below.
