►DESCRIPTION:

The A35 Datelux (also named the 'Nighter' in Japan; a reference to night-time baseball matches) is a 35mm rangefinder camera with date imprint, made by Canon in October 1977. It has a five-element 40mm f/2.8 lens, focusing down to 0.8 metre. The rangefinder is integrated into the viewfinder, which has frame-lines for parallax-error correction at close focus, and also shows the aperture scale with the meter needle, over- and under-exposure warnings, and a battery check. 

On the front of the camera, the flash was on the upper right corner. When necessary, the user could pop-up the flash manually. The flash would then start charging.
