In the 1970s, most of the major camera manufacturers bought out small, automatic exposure rangefinders for holidaymakers who wanted a little more control than the likes of the Olympus Trip 35.
Released in 1977, this camera features an automatic function which chooses both aperture and shutter speed. The camera has a range of shutter speeds from 1/30th to 1/650th (just like the classic Konica C35). The camera has four-element 38/2.8 lens which is really sharp. This style of camera is my favourite for street photography – it makes it really easy to get the shot you want, and like all rangefinder cameras this is very quiet, so great for taking candid shots.
The camera has been film-tested and everything works as it should. It needs a PX 625A battery to operate (not supplied). Optics are clear and fungus free. No issues with light leaks.
The camera comes with a 90-day warranty.
