Based on the New Canonet QL 17, this was the Canonet series’ low-cost, mass-market model.

For exposure control, fully-automatic program EE was incorporated instead of the shutter speed-priority EE featured in previous models in the same series. The camera used a Copal mechanical program shutter which was coupled to shutter speed-priority EE.
