Manufactured in 1971.
This model is the from the second generation of Canon's popular Canonet 28 range. It is lighter than the other canonet cameras probably because of the lack of features and smaller lens glass.Its automatic exposure only, no manual shutter speed setting available (there are aperture settings for use with flash only at 1/30!!)

Fun with this camera.
Just needed a clean and a light seal replacement, then it was good to go.
