The Canon TX is a manual focus SLR produced by Canon, Inc. between 1975 and 1979. It was an export only model (i.e., not sold in Japan) and was basically a stripped down Canon FTb. It had no self-timer (the lever that looks like a self-timer is the depth-of-field preview lever). It also had center-weighted metering instead of partial, and shutter speeds of bulb plus 1 second to 1/500 of a second with a horizontal travel cloth focal plane shutter. It features a Canon FD lens mount and is also compatible with Canon's earlier FL-mount lenses in stop-down metering mode. The TX has a hot shoe for flash and a socket for accessories in the front. The match-needle metering is precise and powered by a V625u Alkaline battery or equivalent (625A, Px-625A, Px13, A625, Lr9). Because it is all-manual, it makes a perfect camera for a budding photographer. The match-needle helps you choose the correct aperture and shutter speed. The canon TX was also sold in the US as the Bell & Howell FD35.
