This is an awesome 35mm Canonet Camera Model QL19. Made by Bell Howell/Canon starting in 1965. It is a rangefinder camera with shutter priority CdS-meter controlled auto exposure and manual override.

This one is a real beauty! Very well taken care of. It has a nice solid feel, heavy without being a doorstop. Nothing is loose or jiggly. A great camera to take out and shoot some real film!


Cosmetics - Excellent. Clean, no dents, very little wear.
Lens - Looks clean and fairly dust-free.
Shutter - Fires well, sounds accurate.

Shutter speeds from 1/4-1/500s
Lens 45mm 1:1.9
Focal range about 2ft to Infinity

You will need to get a new battery for the meter to work.

Where did this camera come from? I purchased this one and many others at auction from a collection from a photography store. They seemed to have been cleaned professionally at one point, but they have been sitting around for some time. I only clean the outside, leatherette and big grungy bits very gently. I do not wipe lenses, I simply dust them a bit with a soft brush. I never use compressed air to clean my cameras as that may damage them and just blows the dust around. I do not test any camera with film, but I do test their mechanics. Any small or significant issues are always disclosed.
