1/1000 Second Shutter Speed, Fully Synchronized.

There is no magic behind the success of the Canon camera. It is simply the result of Canon's superior design and workmanship. Each Canon camera, each of the many superlative Canon lenses will demonstrate this face beyond question.

Supplied with 50mm f:3.5, f:1.8 or f:1.5 Canon lens. Also available is a large selection of wide-angle and telephoto lenses and other accessories. The only 35mm camera simple enough for the amateur, versatile enough for the advanced professional.

Originally from LIFE, January 10, 1955.
