Canon Canonet Junior

Released 1963

I’m not normally too interested in 35mm compacts but I picked up this Canonet Junior for a bargain price. I like the 40mm lens which is a little bit wider than normal. Unfortunately this camera is designed to work either in aperture priority or full auto, but the selenium light meter has died of old age and the shutter is now stuck at 1/30. It’s still usable but you have to be careful to hold it steady.
