For that classic look and feel I present my first iPhone case design. I designed it because I wanted my iPhone to mimic one of my collectible 60’s Range finder cameras from my collection :)
These cameras sold out as fast as the iPhones did when it was first released in 1961 :)
This is Canon’s first intermediate-class, Lens-Shutter 35mm camera. The first prototype looked very orthodox.
The camera had the EE (Electric Eye) feature which was also developed. With shutter speed-priority autoexposure, the camera could take nice pictures. You just had to press the shutter button.
The camera industry went into an uproar upon learning that Canon, maker of high-end cameras, was to introduce a mid-class 35mm camera with a fast f/1.9 lens for less than 20,000 yen. However, the Canonet safely went to market in January 1961. A week’s worth of stock was sold out in only two hours. It was the start of the Canonet boom. Two and a half years later, a million Canonets were sold.
