Chronology of cameras Chinon 

Traduction de Manuel M

This Chinon was presented at the time of the 32ème show of Paris in 1977.

It borrows with the CE-3 of the internal items, but it is semi-automatic. The displaying of the exposure is summarized with three diodes red and green, located close to the eyepiece and which are activated according to the accuracy of the adjustment of exposure. The exposure is really correct only so only the green one ignites. If it red and the green one ignite simultaneously that means that there is a deviation of one diaphragm. Out of this limit, it is it red only which ignites.
