This is a small 35mm camera whose main claim to fame is its metal construction and small size. It is not a rangefinder, but instead requires zone or guess focusing. Its price has escalated far above its user value due to collector interest.

This is a split image rangefinder camera.It has a 45mm,2.8 lens.I bought this camera from a friend who found it while cleaning his attic.Apparently his father had purchased it while in Viet Nam in 1968.The camera case was stamped Dan Nang,Saigon 1968.The meter no longer works. But,everything else is working fine.I use it with a hand held meter or with a wide latitude film such as Tri-X and guess the exposure.I've gotten some images from this camera that I am very happy with.I bought this camera for 10.00 and think it was a great deal.It's fun to try to guess the exposures and I've gotten pretty good at it.
