The Canon Canonet 28 viewfinder camera was launched in 1968.
The Canonet 28 was featured in the 2011 film, ‘I Am Number Four’. This instantly made the camera a lot more desirable. It is described as having ‘cool light leaks’ that affects the photo in an interesting way.
This Canonet was marketed from 1971 to 1976, and was one of the latest heavyweight compact cameras. By the late ’70s, camera construction had begun a rapid change from metals to plastics.
