THE CANON FT QL

Posted on April 30, 2013 by Isabella Cecconi

Few lines to comment this example of preciousness. Maybe one of those Canon Japan evergreens! We’re talking about  the Canon FT QL. It was a 35mm single lens reflex camera introduced by Canon in 1966. It belonged to the elite of small compact cameras. The QL designation was a reference to Canon’s ingenious and successful  quick load system. The stainless steel device on the inside of the body rear door made film loading easier than was normal at the time. The QL was a best seller, becoming one of the fastest lensed  compact 35 cameras in 1966, opening the road to what at the time could be considered Technological and totally chic!
