This is ONE neat camera, and it normally can be had for a princely sum of $25 or $50 or so. Bright VF, fine lens (a Tessar clone), and an indestructible inside. The shutter is quite good, albeit it is a Prontor and from the era when the Prontor held a reputation for poor workmanship. Mine came with a Proximeter, an auxiliary rangefinder. It makes a neat little package. Quite portable and it does a nice job with b&w, colour negative, AND chrome films. Marc email@example.com FAX: +540/343-7315 Cha robh bas fir gun ghras fir!
