Chronology of cameras Canon 

Traduction de Manuel M

Canon AF 35M was an enormous well deserved success. Canon it started again to conceive the 35ML. It started again the characteristics of them and still the result improved some.

It is equipped with an extraordinary tlens 40mm/1,9 with 5 isolated lenses (formula identical to Xenotar conceived by Schneider).

There is no manual adjustment of the distance from focusing. When the shutter release (electromagnetic, from where absolute necessity for a battery) is slightly pressed, the measure is provided and remains remembered as long as the pressure is not slackened. That makes it possible to decentre the main subject of the photograph. In the viewfinder, three pictograms indicate the area of focusing. By defect, the distance from focusing is fixed on 2.5 meters. The automatic focusing is based on the use of sensor CCD (!).

The automatic exposure cannot be disconnected. It covers the sensitivities from 25 to 400 asa. The adjustment of the sensitivity is manual and is done while turning the thin ring which is around the lenst. An aural signal resounds in the event of low light.

The film advances automatically, possibly until a picture by second if the finger remains on the shutter release. Rewinding is also motorized.

The built-in flash has a number-guide of 11, ensuring a range distance from 0.9 to 5.7 meter with 100 asa. The time of recycling is 7 seconds. The speed of exposure rocks on the 1/45 second.

On the back of the camera, a round switch with four positions: BC  (control of the batteries power), OFF, ON and self-timer.

Its release on the French market, in January 1982, was greeted by the critic.
