exciting new (old) Canon
Dec 19, 2013

Check this out!

Canon has come out with some exciting and innovative features on this old model.  Note the dual-mode viewfinder(s), years before Fujifilm.  Be amazed at the unique design of a twin lens reflex in an SLR body shape (which makes it totally awkward to press the shutter button).  Note the use of color-coded icons to denote apertures, and the extremely simplified focusing system which has no manual adjustments.

...Actually, what I'm wondering is, whether there's any chance that in some forgotten and shameful past, this camera might ever have had some legitimate connection to the Canon brand.  Are we really sure it's a knockoff?
