This fully automatic camera’s AF system uses a linear CCD array for triangulation.
Nicknamed “Autoboy Super,” the camera has a fast 40mm f/1.9 (5 elements in 5 groups) lens. The electronic shutter was made by Canon and program-controlled.
The reverse Galilean viewfinder features projected frame lines with automatic parallax correction. An LED lights when focus is achieved. Pictographs for near-, medium-, and far-distance subjects are also provided.
An electronic beeper sounds for camera-shake warning, self-timer operation, and end-of-film alert. The beeper tone is different for each type of audio alert.
AF35ML Quartz Date (released in September 1983) was a Canon AF35ML with a date imprinting feature on the camera back. It also cost 5,000 yen more.
