Canon Canonet Mk 3

Availability: In stock (1)

The Canon Canonet (aka the Bell & Howell Canonet 1.9 in the USA & Canada) was a groundbreaking camera when it arrived in 1961, delivering a top spec rangefinder from a high-end manufacturer for only modest prices. It was an instant success, the initial production run sold out in 2 days after release and the camera went on to sell over a million units.

It’s exceedingly well styled - including a unique bottom mounted film advance lever, solid build, rangefinder focus and coupled automatic exposure with killer optics.

This specimen is something of a beauty, in good mechanical condition and with a relatively clear viewfinder, considering its age. It also includes the original Canon lens cap and leather full case.
