The Canon P (P for Populaire) was a rangefinder camera produced by Canon Inc., compatible with the Leica M39 screw mount (LTM). It was introduced in March 1959 and was marketed as a low-cost sister to the Canon VI-L.


- a viewfinder that gave a 1:1 lifesize image with parallax-corrected bright line frames for 35mm, 50mm and 100mm lenses in a well illuminated image. This also provided ease of use of the increasingly popular 35mm lens in a life-size, parallax-corrected 35mm viewfinder image - not the case with Nikons or Leicas of that period. The Nikon and Leica viewfinders of that time also had smaller than 1:1 viewfinder images, so keeping both eyes open was not feasible with them.

- a single, non-rotating shutter speed dial which allowed easy connection to a light meter mounted to the camera top.

- a new shutter with 1/1000, B and X settings, with electronic flash synchronization speed of 1/55 second, reducing 'ghosting' with flash photography. Also, metal shutter curtains, preventing burning of the shutter curtain.

- lever film winding on the camera top, and a large pop-up film rewind crank.

- a combination of high quality construction with low price
