It's a mid '70s scale focusing rangefinder camera with a Zeiss f3.5 40mm lens. The camera has given me wonderful pictures, and is quite robust. I don't fear taking it anywhere. These cameras routinely come up for sale on eBay and sell for under $200. They also turn up in used camera stores, but are usually priced higher than they should be. An alternative, although close in cost, is the Olympus XA. Quite accurate range finder. Built-in meter. Detachable flash. Super 35 f 2.8 Zuiko glass lens. Quiet. Reliable. Not much bigger than a Motorola Star TAC phone. Again, available used in a lot of camera stores for around $200-220.
