Item details

Vintage CANON Canonflex 35mm SLR First Film Camera Body
Made in Japan
Year circa 1950-60s


DESCRIPTION

This is vintage CANON Canonflex 35mm SLR First Film Camera Body from the late '50s.

The Canonflex was, and is, a nice camera. These days more collectors are starting to appreciate this large well made beast.

Probably the first impression you will get picking up a Canonflex is appreciation for its large size and nice finish. It is a well made camera. The second thing you will probably notice is its odd bottom lever film advance. This was a big Canon selling point, claiming that the 130 degree bottom lever advance was faster than the top mounted
lever. Up to 3 frames per second were claimed possible.

Unfortunately for Canon, most photogs did not find the bottom lever advance convenient on a tripod. Others merely found it odd. Though of course, some people loved it. Rumor is that the Canonflex was very popular with Edsel owners. Rewind button and back opening key are located on the bottom plate. Double exposures were very easy.
Just take the first shot, push in the rewind button, advance and take the second shot!

“Canon Flex” is the first Canon SLR camera. The lenses for SLR cameras advanced from the “R” series to the “FL” series.

Great for collectors and admirers of vintage photography!

Dimensions: 5.75x4"
Weight: 2 lb


CONDITION

This CANON Canonflex has been pre-owned and used previously. It is in average vintage condition with multiple signs of wear and usage.

Shows scratches and blemishes here and there. Chipped enamel. Shows some glue residue around the viewfinder.

Sold AS IS. The camera has been partially tested (without the film), mechanism appeares to be working, as well as self timer. B-T shutter speed seems to be working fine as well.

However, since we have not actually fully tested the camera, we cannot guarantee that it is working properly or working at all. Therefore sold AS IS. The white cap is not from this camera originally.

Please check pictures for more information.

No other accessories or parts are included besides those on the pictures or in the description. Please do not assume that the item comes with anything else that is not listed in description.
