Chronology of cameras Chinon 

The Chinon CS-4 is the semi-automatic version of the CE-4, with a 42 mm screw mount for the lens.

Chinon CS-4


In France, Chinon SLR cameras are less known and less common than those of other Japanese brands. This might be due to the brand's late arrival in the market and a delay in gaining recognition. However, Chinon regularly released new models from the early 70s until the late 80s, with a very good level of quality, ensuring full compatibility with M42 and later K mount lenses, at a very attractive price.
