Chronology of cameras Canon 

Traduction de Manuel M

This camera is characterized by a extra-large viewfinder, thrice larger than the usual average (BF means Big Finder). It is a fix-focus making it possible to obtain the sharpness of one meter and half ad infinitum. The shutter delivers four speeds: 1/45, 1/100, 1/125 and 1/180. The lens is one 4,5/35 mm with three lenses.

The camera is motorized for all that relates to the transport of film. The sensiblity is regulated by recognition of coding DX.

The notched wheel, rather typical of the Canon cameras of the moment, is on a rather incongruous location. It allows stop completely the camera, to put it in “all automatic” mode, to force the lighting of the flash, contrary to inactivating this one or to engage the self-timer.
