Toronto. A late rangefinder model Canon was introduced as the Canon 7 in 1961. This was replace by the Canon 7s shown here in 1965 and made until the summer of 1967. The 7s had two improvements over the Canon 7 – an accessory shoe, and a built in CdS photocell in place of the much less sensitive selenium cell.
At our fall auction (November 19, 2017) we have a beautiful example of the 7s to offer plus a Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens in a separate lot. This was the first Canon rangefinder model with a built-in battery powered CdS cell exposure meter. The 50mm lens is also very collectible.
Once again this camera uses a Leica compatible screw mount for the lens.
