Canon Canonet Junior (1963)

Esta fotografia é do exemplar que possuo


The Canonet Junior is a 35mm viewfinder camera with programmed automatic exposure controlling the shutter and aperture. It was made in Japan by Canon, from 1963. For compactness, a sprocketless advance mechanism was used. The Reverse Galilean viewfinder shows the programmed shutter speed and focus zone.

A sibling of the Canonet, this camera was conceived for compactness and operation ease. The shutter speed and aperture were set automatically, making it easy to use by anybody. The zone focusing system divided subject distances into close, medium, and far with icons. Exposure was set automatically by the EE (Electric Eye) program. The film advance used a sprocketless spool. This made the camera 10 mm less wide and 60 g lighter than the Canonet.
