Asahi: Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic F (SP-F) camera  Asahi: Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic F (SP-F)1973 2479730 The Pentax Spotmatic F (SPF) added full-aperture metering to all of the features found in the Spotmatic II. Full aperture metering required the newer Super-Multi-Coated (S-M-C) Takumar lenses with an aperture-position linkage to the camera. The camera retained backwards compatiblily with all earlier Takumar lenses. Read more at: http://www.pentaxforums.com/camerareviews/pentax-spotmatic-f.html#ixzz3uRIhgTf1
Asahi: Pentax Espio 115M camera  Asahi: Pentax Espio 115M1996 9517599 The Pentax Espio 115(M) is a 35mm compact zoom camera with autofocus made by Pentax, introduced in 1996[1]. In the US it was called the IQZoom 115 with a revised version taking the V suffix. An even later 115G model had a metal middle section with rubber grips. It was part of the Espio/IQZoom series.
Asahi: Pentax Espio 120 camera  Asahi: Pentax Espio 1201994 9140155 
Asahi: Pentax Espio 140 camera  Asahi: Pentax Espio 1401994 5026201 Pentax Espio 140 35mm compact camera with autofocus and zoom lens, issued by Pentax in 1994. Part of the Pentax Espio IQZoom series. Various versions including Espio 140V (a late model in a longer, slimmer body with sliding front cover), Espio 140M (shiny "silver" body) and IQZoom 140 Date.
Asahi: Pentax Espio 150SL camera  Asahi: Pentax Espio 150SL2001 4746938 The original Pentax IQZoom compact camera was introduced in 1986 (available in 1987 in most locations worldwide). It won awards from the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) and European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA). The Pentax Espio camera was released in 1992. From 1990-2005, Pentax sorted its compact cameras into two main groups. The low end range had a PC prefix. The high end series was branded as Espio. Afterwards Espio branded models started appearing in some regions instead of IQZoom which was now most common in the US. Many early IQZoom packaged and branded cameras did not display the IQZoom marking on the camera body itself. Though marked IQZoom on the box, even photos of the camera body on the box did not have IQZoom. These were mostly quite advanced compacts with built-in flash, autofocus, and zoom lenses. Espio/IQZoom models are listed below.
Asahi: Pentax Espio 738S camera  Asahi: Pentax Espio 738Sc2000 2584709 The Pentax Espio 738 is a 35mm compact camera with autofocus and a zoom lens, issued by Pentax in 1995. Part of the Pentax Espio IQZoom series. Various versions including Espio 738G and IQZoom 738S. It was made in China.
Asahi: Pentax Espio 928 camera  Asahi: Pentax Espio 9281994 8521962 1994The Pentax Espio 928 is a 35mm compact camera with autofocus and wide-angle zoom made by Pentax. In the US it was known as the IQZoom 928. Even at it's widest 28mm focal length setting, the lens is very sharp and contrasty, with negligible distortion and not much vignetting. The camera has a couple of interesting exposure modes. Pressing the button with "mountains" icon once will set the focus at infinity, which is ideal for shooting landscapes, particularly from the window of a sightseeing bus. Pressing it twice more will put the camera in "snapshot mode", with the zoom fixed at 28mm and focus at 2.9m, allowing the shutter to fire almost immediately, since the autofocus is disabled.

Asahi: Pentax K1000 camera  Asahi: Pentax K10001976-1997  K1000 is a 35mm film SLR camera made by Pentax and produced between 1976–97. Its design descends from the original Spotmatic series of screw-mount SLRs introduced in the 1960s. An affordable camera for the amateur photographer, it was a fully mechanical, manual camera designed without any program modes. It survived much longer than originally intended and became the archetypal "student's camera." The K1000 was equipped with all features required for manual photography: a TTL metering system, wide-ranging shutter speeds from 1/1000 to 1 s, and the ability to use all the available K-mount lenses made by Pentax and licensees such as Ricoh and Cosina. The K1000 omitted some features found on more advanced models, such as depth-of-field preview, self-timer, and separate meter on/off switch.
Asahi: Pentax Optio camera  Asahi: Pentax Optio 4464481 The Pentax Optio series is a line of consumer digital cameras manufactured by Pentax Corporation. It consists mostly of point-and-shoot cameras, and encompasses the bulk of Pentax's lower-end camera models. These products typically range in cost from $200-$500 USD, with specific "W" models targeted for underwater and outdoor use.

Asahi: Pentax S3 camera  Asahi: Pentax S31961 No;354031 The company that would become Pentax was founded in 1919 as Asahi Kōgaku Kōgyō G.K. (旭光学工業㈾). It was originally an optical company, beginning by making glasses under the Aoco brand (presumably the acronym of Asahi Optical Company), and made its first Aoco v projection lens in 1923.[1] It began to produce camera lenses in the early 1930s, under the management of the CEO Kajiwara Kumao (梶原熊雄) and his closest collaborator Matsumoto Saburō (松本三郎).
Asahi: Pentax SL camera  Asahi: Pentax SL1965 3070935 The SL was essentially a meter-less version of the Spotmatic as it lacked the behind the lens ttl meter. It was pitched by Asahi Optical to replace the legendary SV. The SL had the slot on the shutter speed dial to allow it to accept clip on meters (model SL) and was popular with those that preferred using a dedicated Spot Meter.

Asahi: Pentax Spotmatic (SP) (chrome) camera  Asahi: Pentax Spotmatic (SP) (chrome)1964 1357941 1964The Pentax Spotmatic refers to a family of 35mm single-lens reflex cameras manufactured by the Asahi Optical Co. Ltd., later known as Pentax Corporation, between 1964 and 1976.
Asahi: Pentax Spotmatic F (SP-F) (chrome) camera  Asahi: Pentax Spotmatic F (SP-F) (chrome)1973 4583987 1973The Spotmatic SP F, launched in 1973, included several improvements. It was the first version to offer open-aperture metering, but this needed the updated Super-Multi-Coated (S-M-C) Takumar lenses with an aperture-position linkage to the camera. The FP option for the hot shoe synchronisation was dropped and the meter circuit design was revised to take account of the lens aperture setting and to indicate correct exposure when zero current is flowing through the meter, which now allowed for a variation in voltage from the battery. The battery now needed extra capacity and was changed to the now-defunct PX625 mercury cell. The light meter is constantly switched on but there is an automatic cut-off when the light is at EV2 or less, so it is important to keep the lens cap on when the camera is not in use, in order to conserve the battery.
Asahi: Pentax SV (chrome) camera  Asahi: Pentax SV (chrome)1962 1895089 The Asahi Pentax SV / H3v was launched in 1963. This introduces the fully automatic aperture operation on the Asahi Pentax cameras. For the US market, this model was regarded as a replacement for the H3 with the addition of a self-timer (v), which was the other new thing on this model. It is situated under the rewind knob with an integral film reminder dial. A curved arrow and a chrome release button on the top plate next to it complement the function. A yellow engraved V on the dial indicates when the picture will be taken as seen from the camera front. A new automatic resetting frame counter is placed under a cover on top of the wind-lever hub. The standard lens is the Super-Takumar 1:1.8 / 55mm.

Bilora (Kürbi & Niggeloh): Bella 66 camera  Bilora (Kürbi & Niggeloh): Bella 661956-1963  1956-63The Bella was a line of cheap but attractive and well-built 120, 127 roll film and 35mm cameras made by Bilora in Germany. The Bellas went through several revisions over the life of the name. The body was based on alloy castings, with added leather-effect covering - in various colour combinations. Each was styled a little more like a 35mm camera than a roll film one. The back was removable for film loading, and most models featured a different, large back catch.

Canon: Canon A35 Datelux camera  Canon: Canon A35 Datelux1977  1977Canon’s first camera featuring a built-in flash. On the front of the camera, the flash was on the upper right corner. When necessary, the user could pop-up the flash manually. The flash would then start charging. The flash retracted manually. The camera used the CAT System which set the flash aperture automatically according to the subject distance, film speed, and flash output. The camera had a coincidence rangefinder for focusing, fully automatic program EE, and date imprinting (the mechanism was in the lens barrel like the Datematic). When the shutter button is pressed halfway after the film advances, the date is displayed at the bottom center of the viewfinder. (The date is imprinted on the lower right corner of the picture.)In Japan, the camera was nicknamed “Nighter” which refers to night baseball games.
Canon: Canon AE-1 camera  Canon: Canon AE-11976-1984 829905 1976Introduced in April 1976, the AE-1 was a very successful camera worldwide. When the AE-1 came out, TTL manual-metering models (including the Canon FTb and FTb-N) were still the mainstream in the 35mm SLR market. Autoexposure models were still at the very top end of the SLR market. They were expensive and produced in small numbers. The AE-1, however, was designed from the ground up with five major units and twenty-five minor units. They were centrally controlled by a microcomputer. By incorporating electronics, the parts count could be reduced by 300. The manufacturing of the camera was also highly automated. This made it possible to produce a low-cost camera having high-end features.
Canon: Canon AE-1 program camera  Canon: Canon AE-1 programc1981 2152133 1981It was five years after the AE-1 became a worldwide hit. Many users wanted the program AE mode that was featured in the A-1. This mode set both the shutter speed and aperture automatically. The user just had to press the shutter button. The AE-1 Program camera was developed in response to the demand for program AE and to succeed the original AE-1. The camera now had both shutter speed-priority AE and program AE modes. It also sported a palm grip like the A-1. The camera was also compatible with the A-1’s Motor Drive MA. The viewfinder featured LEDs. It was quite an advanced camera. To make Motor Drive MA compatible with the AE-1 Program camera, it had three electrical contacts instead of only two which the original version had. Also, Power Winder A was converted into Power Winder A2 for higher performance.

Canon: Canon AV-1 camera  Canon: Canon AV-11979 428647 1979The Canon AV-1 is a 35mm single-lens reflex camera with an FD lens mount, introduced by Canon Inc. in 1979. The AV-1 was very similar to the 1976 AE-1 but provided aperture priority autoexposure rather than the AE-1's shutter speed priority AE.[1] The camera is not capable of fully manual exposure.[2] Canon's international distributors, particularly in the United States, had clamored for such a camera because competing brands offered mostly aperture-priority cameras and some preferred it.[1] The AV in the name referred to the type of autoexposure; Av (Aperture Value) is a common abbreviation for aperture priority.

Canon: Canon FT QL camera  Canon: Canon FT QL1966-1972 360521 The Canon FT QL is a 35mm single-lens reflex camera introduced by Canon of Japan in March 1966. It has a Canon FL lens mount compatible with the large range of FL series lenses. The FT can also operate the later Canon FD series lenses in stop-down mode, but the earlier R series has a different lens aperture mechanism and cannot be used, although the bayonet fitting is similar. The standard kit lenses were Canon's 50mm f/1.8 ; 50mm f/1.4 and 58mm f/1.2, the body-only option was offered later.

Chinon: Chinon SLR camera  Chinon: Chinon SLR1979 477048 Chinon Industries Inc. was established in 1948 and incorporated in 1953. The company started as a camera components manufacturer and diversified into optical equipment and computer peripheral equipment. In 1997, long-time partner Eastman Kodak Company became Chinon's majority shareholder by increasing its stake to 50.1%. As part of Kodak Group's global network, the new Chinon Industries Inc. focused its optical, image compression, and other imaging technologies on digital camera design and development. Chinon produced a series of digital camera models for Kodak, and in October of 2000, Kodak increased its share of Chinon to 59.02%. Chinon is now renamed Kodak Japan Ltd and, following Kodak's withdrawal from the camera market, now specialises in optical display film for electronic display devices.
Cosina Co: Cosina C1S camera  Cosina Co: Cosina C1Sc1992  The Cosina C1s is a 35mm SLR made by Cosina, whose products are more typically seen rebranded under other names. While a manual-focus, manual-exposure camera may seem like a throwback in the 21st century, some users (and instructors of photography) still appreciate a camera that emphasizes the essentials, not unlike the venerable Pentax K1000. The C1s also uses the K-mount lens standard, and so can mount a wide variety of lenses dating back to 1975. On the more modern side, the vertically-traveling shutter reaches 1/2000 sec., and syncs with electronic flash at 1/125 sec. The shutter is mechanical and does not require batteries to operate; power is only required to illuminate the meter display LEDs in the viewfinder. Both silver and black finish versions were sold. The Cosina C1 is the same camera, but lacking a self-timer. The C2 and C3 are similar-looking SLRs but offering electronic-shutter autoexposure. The C1s is a continuation of the features Cosina developed for the CT1 Super and variations have appeared as the Dakota RZ-2000, among other names. Links

It could make 6x6 cm or 4x4 cm exposures on type No. 120 film rolls. The variant of 1958 had a lever near the viewfinder to change the viewfinder frame. The variant of 1962 had two finders instead. It offered choice between apertures f8, f11 and f16, and choice between the shutter speed 1/30 sec. and bulb mode. The lens was a focusable 70mm f8 achromatic Spezial-Objektiv.
Fuji: Fuji 3000 zoom Auto Focus camera  Fuji: Fuji 3000 zoom Auto Focus  Introduced by Fuji circa 1991, the Discovery 3000 Zoom Date is an unconventionally-styled 35mm camera. It was also sold as the Fuji FZ-3000 Zoom Date and the Fuji Zoom Cardia 3000. It is held horizontally like a pair of binoculars. It includes a sophisticated (13-element) 38–115 mm zoom lens, programmed autoexposure, and date/time imprinting into the image area. Film speeds from ISO 25–1600 are automatically set using DX coding. The motorized film transport is of the type which first fully unspools the 35mm roll; then as frames are exposed, they are rewound back into the cassette. This eliminates any risk of losing images by accidentally opening the camera. The Discovery 3000 uses a separate optical viewfinder (rather than a reflex finder); but this zooms in parallel with the main lens to indicate the framing of the image. An integral strap surrounding the photographer's right hand helps ensure a secure grip on the camera. There is an LCD screen on the rear of the camera to indicate the settings in use. The maximum aperture of the lens is limited to f/4.4–8.9 (depending on zoom setting). Thus a small internal electronic flash is included; and Fuji offered a dedicated external flash (using a proprietary connector), which offered more power and telephoto reach. Power for all camera functions comes from a 6-volt lithium battery.

Houghton: Ensign Ful-Vue Super camera  Houghton: Ensign Ful-Vue Super1954-1959  "The Ful-Vue camera is really a very simple camera. It consists of a light-tight box. In front of the box there is a hole, over which the lens is fixed. Behind this hole is the shutter. There is a second lens in a second box above it. This produces a picture on the viewfinder on top of the camera. In the back of the box is another hole covered by a red window. This helps you in winding the film on, which you do by the knob at the side of the box near the top."

It was introduced in 1964. The next Konica, the Auto-Reflex, would have a larger diameter bayonet mount allowing the linkage for aperture control to be completely enclosed within it. The Konica FM might have been the first Japanese 35mm SLR to have a cross-coupled, CdS-based meter built in. The meter was powered by a single 625 mercury cell (1.3V). The FM continued use of the Copal Square shutter found in the F series predecessors and shared the same specifications as the FP and FS models. By the time the FM went into production,Konishiroku was beginning to hit is stride in camera production with four years experience in the manufacturing of SLRs. The FM are wonderful handling cameras. Currently,few can be found with accurate, working light meters. However, because the Konica FM is a fully-mechanical in operation, the camera is usable without the meter.

Minolta: Minolta SR-1 S camera  Minolta: Minolta SR-1 S1964 4102718 The Minolta SR-1 was launched in 1959 as the second 35mm SLR camera from Chiyoda Kogaku. There is actually not much difference between this and the first one, the SR-2. It was obviously introduced as a low budget alternative, with the fastest shutter speed removed, and offered with a slightly slower standard lens, the six-element Auto Rokkor-PF 1:2 f= 55mm.
Minolta: Minolta SR-7 camera  Minolta: Minolta SR-71962-1964 2541950 The Minolta SR-7 is the first Minolta SLR to have a built-in exposure meter. In fact it was the worlds first 35mm SLR with a built in battery operated CdS-meter when introduced in 1962, and at the time Minolta's top of the line SLR camera model, usually equipped with the superb Auto Rokkor -PF 1:1.4 f=58mm standard lens with a depth-of-field pre-view lever. The meter is of the dual range variety, having a low and a high range selected by a push button, situated early on at the rear, and later, on model V, to the left of the lens mount on the side of the mirror housing. The meter reading, to be manually transferred to the lens aperture ring, is shown in a window next to the rewind knob at the top of the camera. The film speed is set on the shutter speed dial by lifting and turning to outer collar.
Minolta: Minolta SR-7 Type-b camera  Minolta: Minolta SR-7 Type-b  There are several versions of this camera, the most significant improvement is the 1965 revised body style, the SR-7 model V, which was also the basic body-style for the Minolta SR-T 101 to be introduced the following year. The improved style is recognized by the fact that the stepped shoulders on the camera body are removed. The camera has a built-in 10 seconds delay self-timer mechanism and features a mirror lock-up dial situated on the right-hand side of the mirror housing. The camera body design is particularly clean, having no integral accessory shoe at the top of the prism housing. The shoe was supplied as a separate item to be fixed to the camera using the viewfinder window frame, the early models having a screw-on fixing ring and the later ones a square push on fixture with a locking device.
Minolta: Minolta SR-T 101 camera  Minolta: Minolta SR-T 101 1739436 The Minolta SR-T 101 is a 35mm manual focus SLR camera with Through-The-Lens exposure metering - TTL for short, that was launched in 1966 by Minolta Camera Co. Staying in production for ten years with only minor changes, proves the thorough effort being put into the development of the camera before the introduction. The design is based on the innovative Minolta SR-7 model V camera of 1962, but the principal design is inherited from the original 1958 Minolta SR-2. The SR-T 101 however, has several significant features apart from the TTL meter. The most significant one is perhaps the full aperture metering facility, automatically compensating for the at any time fitted lens' maximum aperture,[2] a feature it took twelve more years for Nikon to accomplish. Full aperture TTL metering was commercially first realised in the brilliant Tokyo Kogaku Topcon RE Super, a feature first realised in a screw mount camera by the introduction of the Olympus Kogaku Olympus FTL, their first full frame 35mm SLR in 1971, but which was abandoned one year later in favour of the remarkable OM system.

Minolta: Minolta SRT-303B camera  Minolta: Minolta SRT-303B1975 3336925  In August 1975 Minolta upgraded the entire range with minor new features, and renamed the cameras. The top of the line SR-T 102 became the SR-T 202, or SR505 in Japan and SR-T 303b in Europe. There is some speculation that this was conducted as simply a marketing measure, but it is considered more likely that Minolta had a plan for progressive upgrades to the platform, with respective model improvements every few years. The camera remained very similar to the previous model, with some minor changes
Minolta: Minolta X-700 camera  Minolta: Minolta X-7001981-1982 2665970 In 1981, the X-700 was awarded the European "Camera of the Year". Its competitive pricing resulted in its becoming the most successful Minolta camera since the SRT line. As Minolta began[when?] to introduce its auto-focus cameras and lenses, further research and development of manual-focus 35mm SLR cameras was shelved. Some internal components of the X-700 were changed over its production run, apparently in an effort to further reduce costs. Minolta was also one of the first major 35mm SLR manufacturer to outsource assembly of its cameras to countries outside Japan.[citation needed] They moved production of their X-300 to China in 1990, where the Seagull Camera factory took over production. In 1999, the X-700 camera was discontinued.
Minolta: Minolta XD-S camera  Minolta: Minolta XD-S1979 3705333 Very rare XD camera with a diopter adjustment in place of the viewfinder shutter. Apart from that the camera is idetical to the XD/XD-7/XD-11.1979. 35mm SLR camera. Japanese market only. Black only.
Minolta: Minolta XG-7 camera  Minolta: Minolta XG-71977   The Minolta XG Series of cameras commenced in 1977 with the launch of the XG7 which coincided with the release of the new XD Series body, the XD11 (XD in Japan, XD7 in Europe and Oceania). The new cameras were designed to provide automatic exposure photography to users at a lower cost than the XD bodies, and as a result they fell between the XD Series and the mechanical SR-T Series that was still in production.
Minolta: Minolta XG-E camera  Minolta: Minolta XG-E1977 117442 Another trusty 35mm SLR camera from the late 1970s, the Minolta XG-E was the first model in the XG series produced by Minolta until the early 1980s. Find out more about this analogue beauty in this installment of Lomopedia! Launched in 1977, the Minolta XG-E (also known as XG-7 in the USA and Canada, and XG-2 in Europe and elsewhere) was the first model in the XG series of budget 35mm automatic exposure SLR cameras which were lightweight, small, and easy to use. Its introduction coincided with the release of the more advanced Minolta XD series, and thus, the served as a more affordable affordable autoexposure option.

Nikon: Nikkormat EL (same as Nikomat EL) camera  Nikon: Nikkormat EL (same as Nikomat EL)1972 5528516 Nikkormat EL - The First Electronic Nikon Camera The Nikkormat EL was an all-metal, electromechanically (some solid-state electronics, but mostly springs, gears and levers) controlled, manual focus SLR with manual exposure control or aperture priority autoexposure, manufactured in Japan from 1972 to 1976. It was available in two colors: black with chrome trim and all black. The EL had dimensions of 93.5 mm height, 145 mm width, 54.5 mm depth and 780 g weight. This was very large and heavy compared to many other SLRs of the mid-1970s. As Nippon Kogaku's first electronic autoexposure camera, the EL required a battery (one 6 V PX-28 or 4SR44 in the bottom of the mirror box) to power its electronically controlled metal-bladed, vertical travel, focal plane shutter to a speed range of 4 to 1/1000 second plus Bulb and flash X-sync of 1/125th second.

Nikon: Nikon FM10 camera  Nikon: Nikon FM101995  The Nikon FM10 is a manual focus 35 mm film camera sold by Nikon Corporation. It is of SLR design and was first available in 1995. It is normally sold in a kit that includes a Zoom Nikkor 35–70 mm f/3.5-4.8 zoom lens, although a Zoom Nikkor 70–210 mm f/4.5-5.6 zoom lens is also available. An electronic companion model known as the FE10 was also sold at one stage. The FM10 is not actually manufactured by Nikon itself, and is not a true member of the Nikon compact F-series SLRs, as the name implies. It is manufactured by Cosina in Japan[1] (as are both the lenses), and is derived from the Cosina CT-1 chassis. Following Nikon's decision in January 2006 to concentrate on digital cameras, the FM10 and the high-end F6 are the only two film-based camera bodies carrying the Nikon name, with the F6 being the only current film-based camera currently manufactured by Nikon. The FM10 has a shutter speed range of 1 to 1/2000th second plus bulb and flash X-sync of 1/125th second. Its dimensions are 139 x 86 x 53 mm, and it weighs 420g. The camera is finished in black with champagne chrome trim. The FM10 was originally intended for sale in developing Asian markets, but is now sold in Western countries too.

Aside from automatically selecting the best combination of shutter speed and aperture for the scene metered by the camera's CdS "eye", the 35 DC has the same body construction, rangefinder assembly, and more importantly, the same F.Zuiko 40mm/1.7 lens as the one on the RD.
Olympus: Olympus 35 LE camera  Olympus: Olympus 35 LE1965  The Olympus 35 LE was a rangefinder launched in 1965. It featured the world's first programmable electronic shutter with a flashmatic function. The 1/15-1/500s programmable EE electronic shutter was controlled by a CdS light sensor through some transistor electronics. Operation was as simple as setting the distance and pushing the shutter button.

Aside from the Pen F series of half-frame SLRs, they are fixed-lens viewfinder cameras. The Pen EE.3, produced from 1973 to 1983, seems to be almost exactly the same camera except that it added the flashmatic system when used with the matching GN14 flash.
Olympus: OM-30 camera  Olympus: OM-30  The Olympus OM System (O = Olympus, M = Maitani) was a line of 35mm single-lens reflex cameras, lenses and accessories sold by Olympus between 1972 and 2002 (some accessories were sold until early 2003). The system was introduced by Olympus in 1972, more than a decade after Nikon, Canon, and other manufacturers had established their own SLR ranges. The range was designed by Yoshihisa Maitani, chief designer for Olympus, and his staff.

Royal Camera: Royal 35 camera  Royal Camera: Royal 351960  The Royal 35 fixed lens rangefinder camera was the first camera made by Royal Camera of Tokyo in 1955, featuring: rangefinder-coupled Tomioka Tominor 50mm / f2.8 - f22 with 5 elements, or, Tominor 50mm / f2.0 - f22 lens with 7 elements and with a 40.5 filter ring. The f2.8 lens was developed in two versions. The early f2.8 lens version had a stepped barrel and 32mm filter ring. The later f2.8 lens version appeared similar to the faster f2.0 lens with 40.5 filter ring, so that both Royal 35 versions (and later Royals) could use the same size filters, hoods and lens caps. Copal-S shutter with shutter speeds: B, 1, 1/2, 1/5, 1/10, 1/25, 1/50, 1/100 and 1/300s. The shutter was located in the body behind the lens, which was not usual for mid-1950's mid-market Japanese rangefinder cameras. body-mounted Copal self-timer with lever, versus a lens-mounted self-timer. Shutter speed dial on the body, versus a speed ring on the lens. 10-blade aperture diaphragm on each lens version, giving nearly circular pupils. There were two main Royal 35 versions. The 'deluxe version'[1] used the f2.0 lens, had a conical chrome-capped black shutter speed dial. The standard model used the f2.8 lens, had a larger, flatter silver shutter speed dial.

Three control rings are around the lens barrel: a distance setting ring for distances from 1m to infinity, a speed setting ring for speeds 1 sec. to 1/300 sec. plus B mode, and an aperture setting ring for apertures from f2.8 to f16.
Sharp & Hitchmough: Sharp VL- DC 1 camera  Sharp & Hitchmough: Sharp VL- DC 1 1159341 Sharp VL-DC1 Taking on the form of Sharp's popular ViewCam series of camcorders, this compact model features an LCD monitor--not a flip-out model but one fitted right on the back of the camera body. It also includes those two all-important accessories--an external mike input and headphone jack. A square joystick-style button maneuvers through the on-screen menus to choose features like manual iris and white balance control. At first sight, I figured that this method of moving through control options would prove to be difficult, but I was mistaken, as I quickly glided through pages of program menus. The manual focus control on this camcorder could really use some redesign work. That square button plays the role of focusing the camcorder. It can get a little confusing, but the text appears quite large in the LCD monitor and it coaches you along with arrows that point in the direction you need to go. This camcorder was built for fun, easy operation and, in that respect, performs very well. It's a good camcorder for beginners, practical for taping birthdays, holidays or other family events and allows for the addition of a few digital effects to spice them up.

Suruga Seiki: Mihama Six Model II camera  Suruga Seiki: Mihama Six Model II1953  The Mihama Six is a series of 6×6 folding cameras using 120 film, produced by Mihama (or Suruga) from 1952 until 1957. There are a number of models, all sharing the same body with horizontal folding bed. This body was manufactured by Takane,[1] at least for the early days. An MSK logo appeared on the folding struts. No model of Mihama Six has any automation for film advance, and all but one can take both 6×6 and 4.5×6 pictures. These have two red windows in the back, one for each format, with a sliding cover accordingly engraved. All the lenses are 75mm f/3.5 unless stated otherwise. Mihama does not seem to have been a lens maker, and "Mihama" lenses can be presumed to have been a mere matter of branding.
Tokyo Kogaku: Topcon IC 1 camera  Tokyo Kogaku: Topcon IC 11973-1978  The Topcon IC-1 Auto is a 1973-1978 35mm SLR from Tokyo Kogaku named for the Integrated Circuit which controlled its shutter priority auto exposure. It was the successor to the Topcon Unirex, and the last Topcon camera to use the UV bayonet lens mount. There are two versions of this camera, where the original dates from 1974 to 1976 and the new from 1976 to 1978. The difference between the two is mostly to do with the specification of the standard lens, where the original was a 50mm f2, and the new a 55mm f1.8. Accordingly the lens speed compensator dial on the original has a maximum setting of f2, while the new has a maximum of f1.8. Additionally, an LED battery condition indicator was added to the upper area of the viewfinder, it got a hot shoe flash connection, the Auto logo colour was changed from black to red, and the serial number was moved from the top plate (next to the rewind knob) to the back of the hot shoe mounting.
Tokyo Kogaku: Topcon Unirex camera  Tokyo Kogaku: Topcon Unirex1969-1973  The Topcon Unirex is a 1969-1973 SLR from Tokyo Kogaku offering TTL spot or averaging metering. The Unirex is most unusual for a SLR in having a leaf shutter not within the lens (or between a permanently attached rear section of the lens and an exchangeable front section), but instead behind the lens, which is exchangeable in its entirety.

Vivitar: Vivitar V4000S camera  Vivitar: Vivitar V4000Sc1997  The Vivitar V4000 is a Pentax K mount 35mm SLR marketed by Vivitar. As with most Vivitar-branded cameras, Cosina was the actual manufacturer, using parts from their CT1 Super and related models. The V4000 has shutter speeds from 1 second to 1/2000 of a second, with a B setting and flash sync at 1/125 of a second. ISO range is from 25-3200. The viewfinder has a horizontal split-image spot and a microprism ring, with the LED readout for the light meter located on the left side. Two color variants of the V4000 exist, an all-black model and a two-tone black and silver model. The camera requires two LR44 or SR44 batteries. In common with a number of other Cosina-built SLRs, the shutter release of the V4000 is locked (and no meter readout can be seen) until the film-advance lever is pulled outwards from the body. The V4000s shares all these specifications, but also offers a self-timer.
Voigtländer: Vitessa (Type 136) (Vitessa T) camera  Voigtländer: Vitessa (Type 136) (Vitessa T)1956  The folding Vitessa was replaced by the rigid Vitessa T. It was based on the folding Vitessa models, and retained their basic body but without the barn-door, their rangefinder, uncoupled selenium meter and the plunger rod advance mechanism. But the Vitessa T had a rigid body, and interchangeable lenses in front of a Synchro-Compur leaf shutter. Focusing is by a ring around the lens, as usual but unlike the folding Vitessa that have a wheel operated by the right thumb.

Yashica: Samurai Z camera  Yashica: Samurai Z1989 223876 The Yashica Samurai Z and Z-L were introduced in 1989 by Kyocera, continuing the series begun with the Samurai X3.0 and X4.0 but in a slightly smaller and lighter body. The Z-L version was notable as being functionally identical to the Samurai Z, but with its handgrip and controls reversed for use by left-handed photographers. Other new features in the Z/Z-L were faster sequence shooting (claimed to reach 4.5 frames per second); plus double-exposure and intervalometer options. The zoom range was only 3x, as with the original Samurai; and the Z's 25–75 mm zoom was slower, at f/4.0–5.6 to help reduce body size. The electronic flash pops up, rather than having a fixed diffuser as on the earlier Samurais.
Yashica: Yashica Autofocus Motor D camera  Yashica: Yashica Autofocus Motor D1983  20 US$The Yashica Auto Focus Motor II D is a basic 35mm point-and-shoot from 1980. It comes in two models: the Auto Focus Motor II D Quartz as shown here with quartz date, and the plain Auto Focus Motor II without date. There was an older model Auto Focus Motor that came before this model. It had a pop-up flash. In 1980, autofocus was a big deal, and so was a built-in motor. It took Nikon three more years to introduce its first autofocus and first built-in motor camera, the Nikon L35AF, which wasn't an SLR, either. This Yashica was literally years ahead of Nikon.

Zeiss Ikon: Contina II (527/24) camera  Zeiss Ikon: Contina II (527/24)1956-1958  During WWII Hubert Nerwin thought about a new 35mm folder. The results of his thoughts were developed after the war to Zeiss Ikon's first completely new postwar product, made since 1948 as Ikonta 522/24. As Zeiss was unable to produce sufficient Tessar lenses (due to war damage to their production facilities), this is one of the few Zeiss models ever to feature a non-Zeiss (Schneider Xenar) lens. The model was continued in 1953 as Contina, as one of the first cameras of the new Contina series of 35mm viewfinder cameras (one was a rangefinder) made in Germany by Zeiss Ikon. The first models were folders, later models were rigid. Some had linked shutter/aperture rings, using the Light-value system. The folding models had knob wind, frame counter and rewind fitted to the bottom; the later ones had top-mounted 180° lever wind, knob rewind and frame counter around the shutter release.
