Film Camera – SLRs: Bell & Howell Auto 35 Reflex

IMG_1867

And so began my love for all things Canon.  The B&H Auto 35 Reflex is a Canon EXEE produced from the late 60s through the early 70s and re-branded as the B&H for sale in the west. This one has Canon’s EX 50mm f1.8 standard lens.  Canon also made a 35, 100 and 135mm f3.5 lenses that are not easily exchanged.  The shutter’s fully mechanical B, 1/8 – 1/500 speeds are fired without the 1.3v mercury battery used for TTL CdS metering.  Shutter priority metering is achieved by match needle within the viewfinder.  Aperature settings are not on the lens but on the ring surrounding the film rewind lever.  X-sync is 1/60 by means of a PC socket.  On the front is the spring loaded self-timer shutter release and the QL stands for Canon’s quick load film system the Auto 35/EXEE employed.
