The Canon Demi is a half-frame camera - "demi' is the French word for "half", and was introduced in 1963 (after other brands like Olympus had made the hugely popular Pen camera in 1959).
The camera uses ordinary 35mm film, but takes two 24x18mm exposures in the place of a normal 24x36mm film frame - so a 36 exposure roll will actually hold 72 separate half frame photos.
The Canon Demi offered high-performance features in a pocket-size package. They included a direct viewfinder, a 28mm f/2.8 lens (5 elements in 3 groups), and a match-needle selenium exposure meter which used a behind-the-lens light value program for accurate metering.
