This is a wonderful camera to use, simple and fast. It has everything you need for to get a photo quickly. The coupled rangefinder makes focusing easy and the 'Cyclops' light meter takes care of exposures. It takes readily available 35mm film.
50 years old, in excellent condition and working perfectly. It has a Citizen shutter assembly and a Yashinon lens with a maximum aperture of ƒ2.8 lens and a 45mm focal length. Speeds range from 'B' 1 2 4 8 15 30 60 125 250 1/500th secs.. The f/2.8 aperture is fast enough to throw the background out of focus. I took the photograph on the sidebar using a Minister III camera, with the aperture set to f2.8.
This camera is in excellent condition. Film is 35mm, still in plentiful supply, and processed by most drug stores and camera shops.
