    Yes, you can.

    I've been using my Canonet a lot more lately, having had the urge to simplify. The easiest (but expensive) way to use the A mode is to replace the funky mercury batt with a Wein cell available at a decent camera store.

    You can also use a 625A alkaline battery in it (from Radio Shack), but the metering will be a little off. I've found it's been close enough to get a correctible image with the color print film I use.

    You can also muck around with making zinc-air hearing aid batteries work, or buy a diode adapter. Have not tried those solutions.

    You can find out more on all this stuff with a few minutes doing Google searches. Try "Canonet Battery" or "625 mercury cell replacement".

    Have fun with it!
