Porst-branded Cosina CX-1 zone-focus 35mm camera.
This is a version of the Cosina CX-1 zone-focus compact camera made in the early 1980s and which led to the cult Cosina CX-2 and the legendary Lomo LC-A.
It’s a 35mm compact with a 35/3.5 lens with four focusing distances and an automatic exposure system which will choose both the aperture and shutter speed for a correct exposure.
This is the rarer version of the camera imported by the West German photographic chain Foto-Quelle in the 1980s and sold under their “Porst” brand.
This camera helped create the Lomography craze and takes fantastically atmospheric pictures, with corner vignetting and saturated colours. The zone focus is easy to use and the auto-exposure system is very accurate.
This camera is in perfect working condition with only minor cosmetic scratches. It comes with a 90-day warranty covering electrical and mechanical defects.
It will be shipped with two LR44 batteries for UK buyers only.
