Canon Canonet 19 35mm Film Rangefinder Camera - Fully Functional
Here we have a beautiful condition Canon Canonet 19. This camera is fully functional and ready to provide another lifetime of fantastic photos.
This camera is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition. The aperture blades are free of corrosion, damage, or oil. The glass elements are free of fungus, balsam separation, haze, and scratches. The light meter works as it should, as does the autoexposure and manual modes.
The focus ring and aperture rings actuate as they should with minor signs of age (there's a tiny stiff point in the action that will likely work out with exercise), and the viewfinder and rangefinder are bright and contrasty. Neither finder shows any haze or fungus.
The Canonet 19 is a compact, coupled-rangefinder camera with a silent and accurate leaf-shutter. It features automatic exposure mode as well as manual shooting in flash mode.
The Canonet 19 features a fast prime 45mm f/1.9 lens. This lens makes the camera exceptional for street photography, low light and available light shooting. It is incredibly quiet, extremely compact, and highly capable. This combination of traits often leads the Canonet to be called "the poor man's Leica." But perhaps a better moniker might be "the smart man's Leica".
The camera will be shipped immediately and packaged securely to ensure safe delivery.
