Canon Demi

Released 1963

I bought the Canon Demi partly for interest – it is a “half-frame” camera. It takes normal 35mm film but instead of the usual landscape-format negative, it takes two half-size portrait-format negatives in the same space. This means you can get twice as many pictures on a film – there is room for 72 on a normal 36-exposure film.

I also think its smooth, curved looks are well ahead of its time, and due to its small size, it could almost be a digital compact!

See all photos taken with the Demi.
