Old but hardy manual camera, not too versatile or easy to use, but great photos if you have time to set it up properly

A lot of fun, and a good camera, especially with a really nice lens mounted. Be prepared to give yours a good cleaning/lube/adjustment when you find one.

This camera is a Russian copy ofthe Contax II rangefinder.It was made at the Contax Arsenal factory in Kiev, which itself, was awarded to the U S S R as "War reparation" after the second world war.It is very robust, the wideely seperated view and rangefinder windows give a good, bright and easily used centre field and the lense ( a 50mm f2)is sharp and bright.I am not the world's best photographer but I have taken some of my best pictures with this camera and intend to obtain a 135mm lense and rangefinder for it.
