In 1965, Canonet QL 17, QL 19 and QL 25 were released on the market. Their difference in name corresponds to those of their apertures 17 corresponds to a lens 1,7/45 mm, 19 with one 1,9/45 mm and 25 with a 2,5/45mm. The three are QL, i.e. which they are equipped with the device Quick Loading ensuring the automatic fixing of the film on the receiving reel.
These cameras have a telemetric centring with correction of parallax.
The exposure is controlled by a cell located in the mounting of the lens. The user chooses the shutter speed and the cell determines the adequate diaphragm. The aperture is indicated in the viewfinder. Speeds of the Copal SV shutter go from the second to the 1/500 of second. The automatism of exposure is disengageable.
Aperture 1.7 and the telemetric centring make QL 17 an exceptional camera. If you replace mercury battery 1.3 volt by an alternative solution (see on the forum) authorized, you will have between the hands a superb machine with images.
In 1966, the QL 17 was sold by Grenier Natkin at the cost of 1027 french francs, the QL 19,873 french francs and the QL25 675 french francs. It is then specified that the importation is limited by it.
