Although this camera belongs to the CanonFlex series, it was developed as an entirely different model to the CanonFlex.

It used the same body shell as the Canonflex, the pentaprism was set very low, giving the body a unique shape. The top cover looked high, and the film advance lever fitted stylishly into a slot on the top cover. Coupled to the large shutter speed dial was the built-in selenium exposure meter which indicated the proper aperture.
