he EXEE is a 35 mm SLR camera made by Canon from 1969 until the early 1970’s. It was replaced by the Canon EX Auto in 1972.

This camera had unusual features such as shutter speed-priority AE, maximum-aperture TTL metering and AE, a bright aerial image viewfinder, and focal-plane shutter. The front lens element was also interchangeable.

The CdS meter reads between EV 4.75 and EV 17. It requires a 1.3V mercury battery or modern substitute. However, the shutter speeds are timed mechanically, so the camera functions without a battery (without metering).
