but I would like you to understand

Thank you

Today we look at a Canon rangefinder film compact camera released in 1965.

Canom CanonetQL25(Reference product)

It has the appearance of a steel silver color base with black grips.

The lens is a 45mm f/2.5.

The lens is equipped with an aperture and focusing ring, just like a lens for an SLR camera.
The shutter speed and film sensitivity are also controlled by the lens.

The viewfinder has a unique design from the first Canonet.

Viewed from the top,
There is a film rewind handle, accessory shoe, shutter release button, film winding lever, and film counter.

On the bottom is a push button for rewinding the film after shooting, a tripod seat, and a battery compartment.

The rear has a viewfinder.

This time we introduced a Canon rangefinder film compact camera released in 1965.

This Canonet series was released from 1961 to 1972.

It was a compact camera at that time, so its form was a bit large, but it was a camera series with a strong presence that had functions used for SLR cameras.

When I get a chance, I would like to do another column on rangefinder compact cameras from the 1960s!

Thank you for reading my column today.
