To cut costs, the camera had a fixed, eye-level pentaprism viewfinder. This was the economy or “Populaire” version of the Canonflex.

The self-timer was operated by a simple lever, and the pentaprism cover was part of the single-piece top cover. Other features and performance were the same as the original Canonflex.
