The Canon S modification, which became the object of speculation after the war, as most of these cameras sank along with the ships of the Imperial Japanese Navy.

Produced in small numbers, the main difference from early Canon cameras was the engraving in Japanese, and the presence of anchors on the top cover.

Perhaps it was a gift for the commanders of the submarines of the Japanese Imperial Navy during the war, or the "weapon" of military correspondents. Supplied with a Nikkor 50mm f2.0 lens.
