The Auto-Lux 35 is a 35mm fixed lens SLR introduced in 1963 by Mamiya. It features a a Copal-X leaf shutter with a 48mm 1:2.8 lens.

The camera has external selenium metering. This allows for shutter priority auto-exposure although the camera can also meter in manual mode. The camera also has a Bulb setting which is accessible after pressing a switch on lens barrel. The leaf shutter allows flash sync at all shutter speeds.

Also sold as rebranded in European markets as the Rank Mamiya Auto-Lux 35 (pictured), Revue Auto-Lux 35, and the Porst Autoflex.

The camera may have been the basis or was based on the short lived Canon Canonex which is broadly similar[1].
