Chronology of cameras Canon 

The first cameras marketed by Canon were heavily inspired by Leica. Their silhouette remained largely the same until the mid-1950s, with the arrival of the VT. These are 35mm cameras with interchangeable lenses. Some models have a non-standard mount for which only one lens was available. Most of these models are rangefinders. Slow speeds are adjusted using an independent dial located on the front face.

Starting from 1952, some models were synchronized for magnesium flash, and a few years later for electronic flash. The synchronization device is the subject of patent No. US2643597 filed in 1950 (it was filed in Japan in 1948) and the inventor is Hiroshi Suzukawa. The uniqueness lies in the synchronization being done through a rail fixed on the side of the camera.


__________

The Canon IIIA was produced from December 1951 to September 1953 (Serial numbers from 61,150 to 105,800).

Compared to the III, the rangefinder focusing magnifier is operated by a new lever consisting of a single piece, and the winding knob has a film type reminder window.

The standard lens may be the Canon Serenar 50 mm f/1.9 or f/3.5. A new superb Serenar 1.8/50 mm lens is available.

Many hybrids with the III are encountered. At least three types of top cover engravings are identified. The red dot placed next to "Japan" indicates the third of these types, meaning the more recent specimens.
A US ARMY model exists, with the inscription engraved on the baseplate.
