Forget me not

Newer Older

Few days ago I went to this camera show. This one caught my attention because of the interesting light meters in front of the lens. Looked like jewels. Never seen anything like this before. I was told the model was released more than 40 years ago. Silly me, I didn't try to remember the model name.
Does anybody know?

Edit: Thanks to Jim, I just found it in the net. See this link.

    That looks like the Canonet f1.9 from the early 1960's. The circular 'jewel' is a CdS (?) light meter. This camera may be famous for being featured in a film called 'Pecker.'

    This camera's descendent is the famous Canonet 17 QL GIII which is a good quality fixed lens rangefinder, often unkindly called "The Poor Man's Leica". More like the "Smart Man's Leica!"
