One of the Canonets featured along with Mischa Barton on the cover of Genlux magazine, Issue #10, Spring 2009. That looks like one happy camera!

Canonet Instructions

The Canonet was a camera brought out by Canon in early 1961 aimed at the consumer market. It was less expensive and less complicated to operate and appealed to a very wide audience. All of that said, it was a well made camera with an excellent lens and was capable of very fine pictures.

The original Canonet was followed by a series of cameras using the same general layout and concept aimed at the same market but with ever more powerful automatic features. I have referred to these cameras as the “Canonets” although they are all distinguishable models.

I like them. They are solid and well made and they feel good to hold. So I have included them in The Collection.  I look forward to trying them out with a roll of film!
