Overview and Personal Comments. The Canonet 28 is a coupled-rangefinder, leaf-shuttered 35mm camera with fully automatic exposure. Using the text or images on this website without permission on an ebay auction or any other site is a violation of federal law. The camera was made for about canojet years until It was a low-end consumer model so you can usually find mahual pretty inexpensively. The Canonet came to fame with the movie Pecker. It’s been found in garage sales and goodwill stores for much less than its real value.

A perfect street camera, especially if you can find the higher-quality QL17 model. It’s not TTL metering as the CdS cell is located right above the taking lens, but it still does a great job. Since the CdS manaul is on the lens mount itself, a handy feature is that if you forget to leave the lens cap on a common mistake with rangefinders as the viewscreen doesn’t go black as with SLRsthe camera’s slow-shutter interlock functions and you can’t take a picture.

Although the Canon Museum says this unit features parallax compensation, canoner one doesn’t. It only has a spare manuao of gridlines in the viewfinder that one is supposed to use at close distances. The Canonlite flash that came with it can be coupled with the metering system through an extra pin on the hotshoe.


This allows for full “plug-and-play” nighttime shots, that is if your Canolite wasn’t DOA. The program automatic exposure is annoying. There, I said it. In daylight, it gives you the shutterspeed reading, but the aperture it hass selected is a mystery somewhat – it selects mid-apertures in most cases. When trying to flash sync, you can’t take advantage of the Copal shutter’s ability to sync at any speed. If there’s one major complaint, it’s that the camera only supports a maximum film ASA speed of This rules out most of the neat ISO films that are now out there.

And the mercury PX battery is no longer available. You can use an alkaline PXa or equivalent, but you’ll need to compensate for the meter slightly since the alkalines are higher voltage 1.

Run a test roll to see how much you need to compensate.

Lens use helicoid focusing. Right focusing infinity on right side. X-flash sync at all speeds.

Hotshoe has extra pin for dedicated Canolite D flash. Type film 35mm standard. Its first goal was to produce domestic inexpensive Leica clones, and it released the Kwanon, its first camera in Interestingly, they used Nikon lenses since Nikon was already established as an optical lens manufacturer and was not making any of its own camera bodies at that time.

Canon soon gained the ability to make their own lenses and never looked back. Nikon also went on to produce some reasonably popular cameras of its own as well. The name ‘Canon’ comes from the Buddhist deity Kwanon and early Canon canomet were actually spelled ‘Kwanon’ and the lenses were mahual ‘Kyasapa’ after another deity.



Canon is my favorite Japanese company along with Honda. I actually interned for Canon Japan ok, Canon Sales Japan, a part of the Canon keiretsu during a summer in college and loved my coworkers to death.

They keep coming out with innovations that take your breath away. Notes on cameras that I have used and enjoyed over the decades — from toy cameras, working classics, and professional units.
