Canon Canonet 28

The original Canon Canonet 28 viewfinder camera was launched in 1968.
The later Canonet 28 35mm rangefinder camera is a cheaper consumer version of the famous Canonet QL17. The lens is a fixed 40mm f/2.8 Canon lens. It has fully programmed auto exposure with shutter speeds from 1/30 to 1/600 (shown by the meter's needle in the viewfinder), and manual control of f-stops for flash (f2.8-f16). The film speed range for auto exposure is from 25 to 400 ASA. It uses a Copal leaf shutter and has a coupled rangefinder. It was made in Taiwan.

This Canonet was marketed from 1971 to 1976, and was one of the latest heavyweight compact cameras. By the late '70s, camera construction had begun a rapid change from metals to plastics.
