One of the most simple, no-nonsense 35mm camera bodies available. Released in 1999, it was one of the first 'modern' cameras to reintroduce the LTM/M39 mount. Notable about this camera was the fact that it lacked a viewfinder or anything closely resembling one. On the back of the camera there is a light meter built in though! 

This camera is best used with a wide angle lens & external finder. Due to it's compact size and weight, this make it a perfect street photography camera. A great base for exploring some fun combinations! 


This body comes in good shape with little signs of previous use. As with most, the rubber coating on the back of the camera, didn't hold up that well. Nothing that will affect results. Speeds and light meter are accurate. Camera comes with original body cap.
