The original Canonet (1961) is still a great imagemaker. We shot one of these on our 1970s European OE and nearly 50 years later the colour and sharpness of the slides still impresses. On many of these early rangefinders the positioning of the selenium light cells meant they could never be turned off as they generate current whenever exposed to light, so today they are permanently off. Canon's design with the cells arranged around the lens giving greater metering accuracy and also the ability, by using a lens cap, of turning the meter off. By remembering the lens cap the Canonet light cells still work when needed today. Our example presented here is in very good overall operational condition, including lens cap, original lens hood, original leather case, box and instruction book.
