The Canonet: When I was a kid, I remember seeing a lot of pictures that my mom kept in neatly laid-out pages. I also remembered that our favorite aunt had a small canon rangefinder camera. I have seen her taking pictures with it during reunions and family excursions and I also vividly remember wishing I had one. That was the sixties and seventies and so about a week ago I sent her an SMS message to ask her if the canonet still exist or was it just a figment of my wishful imagination. I asked her slowly if she would let me rescue the orphaned camera and buy it from her. After some negotiation it's now mine...after 3 decades of lusting for it.
