The advance lever had an end which hinged downwards, making it easy to operate using the left middle- or third-finger. These controls on the bottom necessitate corresponding holes in the every-ready case. Rangefinder focusing is controlled by a lever attached to the focus ring, also at the bottom of the camera. The selenium meter cell is arranged around the Canon SE 45mm f1. Film speed is set between ASA by a lever in the shutter speed ring.
The viewfinder features a bright-line, and a scale showing the aperture. Early models had no aperture scale but used two arrows to indicate over or under exposure. These early models also had a limited ASA range as did the first model with the aperture scale.
There is a PC socket beside the lens, and a switch on the lens barrel for X- or M- flash sync. There is a self-timer - set by a lever on the lens barrel.

A little extra pressure is required to get it started. The wind lever is almost always held in by a top cap removed by a spanner in two holes or by gripping the outside and twisting counterclockwise.

Expecting little, I came away very impressed. Whenever the design was upgraded the name would be changed to reflect this. These design changes are for the best since the shooter gains ultimate compactness while still retaining a focal length that is arguably perfect for street photography. Of similar importance in street shooting is the ability of the photographer to inconspicuously melt into his or her surroundings. This can be difficult with massive, shiny cameras. While the chrome Canonets can stand out in a crowd as attractive vintage machines, the all black version is damn near invisible. This version is fairly rare and excellent examples will fetch a premium, but the added invisibility will be a big draw for the serious street shooter.
