A gorgeous reflex camera constructed of wood, iron and leather.
It's really a rarity to find a Planex, and when I met her, I did not hesitate to buy it even though it was broken and its poor condition.
After more than two weeks of work the camera looks really nice and in addition works perfectly.

Nice camera, seems to be a great work on restoring it. Thanks for sharing, Piratada!

Looked at the eBay sale you've got this camera from. Did you remove the paint from all the metal parts? Why? :? Don't like patina? :)

Actually some of the metal parts had been repainted without much care, when I started to remove the old paint I realized that the contrast of the black leather with gold metal gave it a really nice touch

Even though the camera is "less original" now, it is a nice touch for sure :)
