Canon IIIA Chrome 35mm Rangefinder Camera Body Description


An improved version of the Canon III. The old viewfinder mode selector lever (two-piece with knob) was replaced with a smart-looking, single-piece lever. Also, the film advance knob's diamond knurling pattern became vertical grooves. A film speed indicator dial was appended on the film advance knob for a luxury touch.
