This model should not be confused with the fraudulent "Canomatic"-badged version of the Olympia plastic camera.

A Canon camera introduced in 1970, for 126 film. The lens is surrounded by a selenium meter (a late example of this) providing programmed autoexposure (f/2.8 at 1/30 sec to f/13 at 1/800 sec) keyed to the emulsion-speed notch of the 126 cartridge. Two AAA batteries provide power for motorized film advance as well as firing flashcubes. The 40mm f/2.8 lens is a 4-element design, using zone focusing.
