Rangefinder camera #2!

This time, we would like to introduce a 1977 Canon rangefinder camera for sale at our Vintage Shop Japan Inc.

What is a rangefinder camera?> 

I’m just going to recapitulate my last one.

This camera has a built-in rangefinder inside the camera, and according to the distance, the camera uses a focusing ring to adjust and superimpose the subject seen through the two windows in the front of the camera.

For more information on rangefinder cameras, see the column below.

The Canon A35 Datelux, released in 1977, is a camera with a good color balance between the black color of the body, the white of the manufacturer’s name, and the yellow of the model name.

This time, we put in a replacement battery and checked various operations, but it did not work, so unfortunately, it is for parts.
It is a good idea to try to repair them as well as to get parts.

This time, we introduced the 1977 Canon rangefinder camera that is on sale at our Vintage Shop Japan Inc.
