Canon System Complete Brochure 1956

Canon System Of Photography 1956 31 pages plus 4 page Amendments and Corrections.

http://www.mediafire.com/?4k6mu0amn7z1i6p

This Brochure came unexpectedly with my new 85mm f/1.9 II

Since I have had so much help around here, I thought I would do something and scanned it to PDF, 13.7mb

Feel free to rehost.





In Addition:

Canon Lenses, directions and tables, 43 pages Jan 1955





http://download541.mediafire.com/j5x...enses+1955.PDF

all the best,

Charlie

The 35/1.8 lens in the pictures is clearly a prototype, with unevenly spaced apertures. Glad they revised that before shipping it.

Very nice. I started playing with some numbers corrected after inflation and I'm amazed how different the prices are, to our benefit, these days for both new and used cameras.

hoh7-As a Canon user, thanks more than I can ever express.
The 50mm f2.8 lens writeup says, "Ideal for copying, enlarging..." The 50mm f3.5 lens writeup says, "Universal lens for use on camera, enlarger, etc." Did you all know these were also enlarger lenses? I surely didn't!

Brilliant! I love old brochures like these. Girlfriend recently bought a Minolta Mini projector (cute thing) which came with a whole bunch of old Minolta literature. Stoked!

Was very common back then, lenses were expensive after all. That's why a 39mm enlarger thread is still the most common. I suppose by the time 39mm fell out of fashion, more and more specialised enlarger lenses were available cheaply.

For those with fixed lenses, I have a 1940s-1950s Kodak book which shows you how to use a camera as an enlarger! I think you still leave the negative in the film gate.
