Chronology of cameras Canon 

With the Canonet, Canon entered the international markets for amateur compact cameras. Until then, the brand had remained relatively obscure in the European market. Over a decade, various models of the Canonet succeeded each other. Almost all of them were rangefinders with exposure control.
The range primarily revolves around two lenses opening respectively at f/1.7 and f/1.9. To offer cheaper models, Canon released the Canonet Junior and the Canonet 28, with a 2.8 lens and without a rangefinder. The second-generation Canonet 28 has a rangefinder. The Canonet 25 remains an isolated case with a 2.5 lens.

Models with a Selenium cell have it around the lens. In the American market, some models bear the dual branding of Canon and Bell & Howell.

__________

This Canonet 28 corresponds to Canon's desire to offer a compact camera that is cheaper than the other Canonet models. To achieve this, a number of features are different. For example, it does not have a rangefinder. The lens is a 2.8/40 mm, which is less bright than on other models. The light meter uses a selenium cell arranged around the lens. As a result, the camera requires two AAA batteries. 

In the viewfinder, the needle of the cell appears, indicating the shutter speed, and a distance indicator. This indicator uses small drawings such as "landscape, group, portrait," while the distance scale on the lens is graduated in meters and feet. When turning the distance ring, you can feel the notches that correspond to the three pictograms.
