The classification of Canonet corresponds, not with their work order, but with the aperture of their lens.
This one thus has a lens 2,8/40 mm, with four lenses (divided into 3 groups). Compared to other Canonet 28, that of 1968, the difference is thus not at the lens, but at the aiming. On this new model (one often says “New Canonet 28”), the viewfinder is telemetric. The finder is equipped with a correction of parallax, in the shape of a double brilliant framework.
Broadly the make of this new Canonet 28 is much more solid. Certain plastic elements, particularly fragile, disappeared, as the crown of the cell.
The shutter is programmed of 1/30 seconds F 2,8 to 1/620 seconds F 14,5. The range of the sensitivities usable on this camera go from 25 to 400 asa. Position A on the crown of the aperture corresponds to the use of this progamme (“electronic eye”).
It is possible to manually regulate the value of the aperture .
Only the real problem to use this camera today is the replacement of the battery originally to mercury (PX 625), but there are solutions. Other Canonet are however more luminous.
