Canon Dial 35 with original box and camera manual!

The Canon Dial 35 is an unconventional half-frame 35mm camera with clockwork automatic film advance. It was made in Japan by Canon in November 1963. The Dial 35 was also sold as the Bell & Howell Dial 35. The body has an unusual "portrait" format rectangular shape, with a short, wide-diameter lens barrel containing the CdS meter photocells window around the 28mm lens. Rotating the lens barrel sets the speed of the Seikosha shutter; the aperture is set automatically. A button below the viewfinder can be pulled out to give manual aperture control, for manual exposure settings or flash. Film speed is set on a scale around the meter window.

Focus is set on a lever around the top of the lens barrel, with a display inside the viewfinder. There is a cylindrical handle at the bottom, which also winds the clockwork mechanism. On the (user's) left is an accessory shoe. The film runs vertically, from the cassette at the top to the take-up spool at the bottom, giving a landscape-format 24×18mm frame when the camera is upright.
