Canonet Junior

I just inherited myself a vintage camera from my mom. She found it in while cleaning the closets and asked me if it was any good. I don’t think its working anymore. But it looks good and its still in very good condition. It came with the original leather case too.

I cleaned up the camera and the case then put leather conditioner on the case.

Found out that its not worth much when I googled about it. It is not easy to come by though and is quite rare. I guess its a nice keeper then.

Canon 40mm f/2.8

The camera comes with a fixed 40mm f/2.8 lens.

Passed - Made in Japan

Passed. A sticker that says the product exceeds standards is good enough for Japanese domestic market use. The Japs have a superiority complex and are very nationalistic. They keep the best products for themselves and for those that just pass the standards are good enough for export market consumption.

Here’s a link to it on the Canon Camera Museum website.
