The Canon Pellix QL is a manual, mechanical 35mm SLR introduced in the 1960s. This camera body is paired with the 50mm 1.8 Super-Chromatic R lens. This camera uses FL lenses.
This camera contains a pellicle mirror, a semitransparent mirror which can bounce light up to the prism while also permitting it to pass through to the film plane (the scientific term pellicle is where Canon got the name "Pellix"). Unlike the more common SLR designs with moveable mirrors, this mirror does not move when an exposure is made. Never touch the mirror in this camera.

You can read more about this camera on the legacy listing on Canon's website. 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.
