This camera had unusual features such as shutter speed-priority AE, maximum-aperture TTL metering and AE, a bright aerial image viewfinder, and focal-plane shutter. The front lens element was also interchangeable.

The camera had a built-in rear lens consisting of 3 elements in 2 groups. Besides the normal EX 50mm f/1.8 lens, three other interchangeable front lens elements were available: EX 35mm f/3.5, EX 95mm f/3.5 and EX 125mm f/3.5.

Centerweighted averaging metering was incorporated for easy operation. For lenses with different maximum apertures, the f-number could be adjusted manually to compensate.

* No idea of why they decided to build and sold this screew mount and the following camera.

EX AUTO
35mm Focal-Plane Shutter SLR Camera


Serial is : #265624
Outline
Marketed
Discontinued
  February 1972
Original Price   39,000 yen (w/EX 50mm f/1.8)

 

An improved version of the EX EE, the EX AUTO was very popular with beginners who previously had difficulty understanding SLR cameras. The EX AUTO had maximum-aperture TTL metering and shutter speed-priority AE.The lens' maximum aperture f-number was corrected automatically when the lens was attached to the camera. Another improvement was the addition of the EX 125mm f/3.5 interchangeable telephoto lens.

The lens focusing ring was also coupled to autoflash metering. With the dedicated Speedlite D mounted on the hot shoe and the EX 50mm f/1.8 lens attached to the camera, the CAT System automatically obtained the correct flash exposure for the subject distance. Taking pictures at night became as easy as taking pictures during the day.

Original Price   For export only (no Japanese market price)

 

This camera features TTL shutter speed-priority AE, TTL aperture-priority AE, Intelligent program AE, and TTL metered manual. Although it was compatible with EF lenses, it was a manual-focus camera sold only outside Japan.

The fixed, pentaprism viewfinder has a magnification of 0.75x (50mm at infinity) and 90% coverage. The matte focusing screen has a combination rangefinder. The 7-segment LCD within the image area displays numerals and text for the shutter speed, aperture setting, incorrect exposures, exposure level, film speed, AE lock, and flash ready.

Three-zone evaluative metering. partial metering at center, and centerweighted averaging metering are also provided.

* No idea of why they build and sold this camera which is the only non-autofocus body that had an EF mount. Note that it has been marketed approximatively at the same time that the T-80 FD body (marketed in April 1990), which is the only FD mount body to be an autofocus...
