Are you ready for another quick and dirty camera review which is for sale? Ready, set ………
- Mamiya 135 EE
- Fixed (strange) focal length 38mm + nice F2.8.
- Light meter sensor near the lens. So using a filter will be effect the light metering
- iso/asa dial
Where did I test the camera and which film did I use?
- on the streets of Amsterdam with really expired HP5 with a scratch on the roll and an expired Fuji C-200 color film roll
- One of the rangefinder like the canonet 28. But this rangefinder is smaller.
Handling of the camera
- The Canon is not an all weatherproof camera, but a bit of rain won’t hurt the camera. Just make sure to dry the camera on time. Reflections are awesome to shoot after it has rained.
Here are a couple of individuals snapshots I have taken with the Canon Autoboy II in November 2020. I have to say there’s nothing wrong with this camera if the purpose is to point and shoot. As a matter of fact, this camera is a nice street photography camera and would even be a better camera if the ISO could be set manually.
And a color filmroll Fuji C-200
- ASA iso setting
- nice fixed lens
- 2.8 lens
- use of LR44 battery
- bit of an odd focal length 38mm
- too simple to use (point and shoot)
- not a LEICA

Happy shooting and keep it analog
I have to admit I got a little bit of a problem called: G.A.S (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) I have been collecting analog cameras for quite a few years now, should be a decade or so. I am trying to overcome my problem and will sell the majority of my collection and keep just a few cameras. But before I sell a camera I have the urge to test the camera and write a little review (or maybe ask one of my fellow club members to do so).
