I acquired this camera a couple of years ago from E-bay. It arrived with an Olympus XA2, when I was thinking of going back to basics, and so was a bit of a surprise. I didn’t really look at it for a while. I didn’t realise it was a rangefinder! I thought it was just a compact. Some basic information about the camera. It is a 35mm rangefinder camera, with a 38mm f2.7 Chinonex Color Lens. It was originally powered by a 1.35v mercury battery but I use a hearing aid battery- did try a LR44 but it wasn’t very effective and of course I can’t find my spare hearing aid batteries.. It works in the range ISO 25-500, speed 1/30 – 1/650, aperture f2.7-f14. It also operates at B setting at f2.7 (not tried that one yet) and has a hot shoe and PC socket for flash (again not tried yet). I use the camera on odd occasions- last year when I went to Northumberland on holiday and also started to use it as a carry around. Considering the age of the camera it’s only physical appearance fault is a missing nameplate around the lens. It has a 46mm lens thread (I had to buy a lens cap). Operationally it is quite simple, there is a square in the middle of the viewfinder window and when the two diverging images become one then the camera is focused. I’ve attached some images which I’ve taken with the camera, a couple or three from an early morning trip into the city centre, a couple from this week in the local park and one from an afternoon stroll with Spike yesterday. Picture 1 Interesting bit of street art in Nottingham. As you can see the camera has handled this quite well, if anything a little bit of overexposure. Oh by the way shot on Fujicolour 200 with a tweak and slight crop in Elements 4. Film processed at ASDA and scanned to disc at High Res (1800x1200) and resized for web. Picture 2 Again early AM but shade. More flare but could decide whether reflection or what! Picture 3 Again a bit of flare from the sun behind and to the right of the camera but like the detail in the notices. Colour is not bad either. Picture 4 the park at lunchtime. The sun coming from the right. Overall colour rendition ok. a view across the pond Picture 5 taken yesterday at about 12.55... In summary...well for what it cost (nothing) it's a great camera The major fault is the tendency to slightly overexpose which may be down to the battery I'm using and the flare issue- some kind of hood may be useful. The other problem I have is that I carry it around in my pocket...after I've wound it on, and yeah that's right about 6 exposures are wasted...I must remember not to wind on!!! I think this camera falls into the Lomo category but as a carry round it's just about right once you get to know it.
