Vintage Canon Camera Ad

Check out these swingin' retro advertisement photos we found for the Canon Dial 35 camera. Show us your Lomographs if you own this camera! See this and more vintage camera ads below.

In a world of digital photos and smartphone camera apps, I’m still one of the few people amused to leaf through old photography magazines from the 1960’s to the 1990’s. Back then, analogue camera ads really brought out each model’s unique selling point and were presented more creatively.

Case in point? The Canon Dial 35 camera! The 1963 model was actually a half-frame 35mm camera, somewhat like our beloved Diana Mini, and I thought it was so cool that they used the multiple exposure technique to sell the unit!

Fancy more of these oldies but goodies? You might also like:

The Diana Mini is the ultra-compact, petite version of the Diana F+. This camera takes soft-focused, lo-fi images in 35mm and allows you to change between half-format and square shots with a flick of a switch. Get your own Diana Mini now!
