The original Canon Canonet 28 viewfinder camera was launched in 1968. The lens is a fixed 40mm f/2.8 Canon lens. It has fully programmed auto exposure with shutter speeds from 1/30 to 1/600 (shown by the meter's needle in the viewfinder), and manual control of f-stops for flash (f2.8-f16). The film speed range for auto exposure is from 25 to 400 ASA. It uses a Copal leaf shutter and has a coupled rangefinder. It was made in Taiwan. The Bell & Howell Canonet 28 is more like the original Canonet launched in 1961. It has a flash socket but no hot shoe but has a right thumb film advance lever like the later models. This camera was made in Japan by Canon and has a Seikosha-L shutter. It was capable of using film from 10 to 200 ASA and it too used a Canon SE 40mm f2.8 lens. The year made was somewhere between 1961 and 1962. It also has a ¼” 20 thread tripod mount, 1/30 to 1/250 of a second shutter, 3 feet to infinity focus range, easy load film method, rewind slid switch, fold down rewind crank that releases the film when pulled up, pull down back cover release, optical viewfinder with meter readings inside, and hard points for a carry strap.
