Chronology of cameras Chinon 

The Chinon 35 F-EE completes the series comprising the Chinon 35 EE and the Chinon 35 EE-II. Unlike these models, it features an integrated electronic flash, but as a trade-off, the rangefinder is removed. The frosted window above the lens only serves to illuminate a frame with parallax correction markers in the viewfinder.

The lens remains a 38 mm, but it is slightly less bright. The lens rotates within a rectangular protrusion that extends from the rest of the body. A knob protrudes from this part and allows for distance adjustment.

The shutter is electronically controlled.

Chinon 35 F-EE


In 1970, Chinon was still only a subcontractor for other camera brands. It was only around 1972 that the first cameras were marketed under the Chinon brand. At that time, it was easy to follow a naming logic for the first models:

EE = Electronic Eye
F = Flash
A = Autofocus
M = Motor

    Year Focusing Flash Motor DX

35 EE 1972 Rangefinder No No No
35 c. 1977 Manual
35 EE-II c. 1977 Rangefinder
35 F-EE 1978 Manual Yes
35 F-A 1978 Autofocus
35 F-M 1980 Manual Yes
35 F-MA intrafocus 1980 Autofocus
35 F 1982 Manual No
35 FS 1982 Manual
35 F-II 1984 Fixfocus
35 FS-II   1984 Fixfocus Yes
35 FS-A   1984 Autofocus
35 FA Super 1985 Yes No
35 FA II 1985  

With the 35 FX III, Chinon reached the limits of its naming logic. Despite being called 34, this model no longer has anything in common with its predecessors.
