PRODUCT DETAILS

This camera show normal signs of use. We photograph every individual camera that we sell.  Check photos for more information about cosmetic condition.

Includes:

  • Canon Canonet QL17 GIII SN: K69276

 

Additional Information:

  • QL stands for Quick Loading, a clever system that makes loading film fast and foolproof
  • 17 refers to the six-element 40mm f/1.7 lens, highly praised for its “Leica-like” sharpness and ability to focus as close as 2.6 feet
  • G means “grade up” and recognizes quality improvements over the earlier Canonet QL17
  •  III represents the third (and final) generation of Canonets

Although it’s often dubbed the “Poor Man’s Leica” this is a fantastic little camera that can stand shoulder to shoulder with much more expensive rangefinder cameras. The Canonet GIII QL17 was Canon’s best-selling camera for over 11 years and is the world's top-selling rangefinder (with inbuilt light meter) a record unlikely to be broken.

 

This camera used a PX625 1.35V battery.  Mercury batteries are no longer made.  You can use a Wein Cell PX625 Replacement, which is the closest to the original.  Alkaline and silver oxide versions are also available, with slightly different voltage and discharge.
