The Flash 35EE is a viewfinder camera for 35mm film manufactured in Hong Kong by Sanei Sangyō K.K. (三栄産業㈱). It has a super coated Samoca f2.8 40mm lens with a four position focus ring that has icons of a mountain range, three people standing, two people from the waist up, and one person from the chest up (1m to infinity). The exposure is set by an electric eye positioned over the lens in the lens assembly and is powered by a 357 pill battery located in the bottom of the camera. The shutter release button has provisions for a plunger to be screwed in and there is a ¼” 20 thread tripod mount on the bottom of the camera. Other features are a single action film advance lever, fold down rewind crank arm that opens the back cover when the assembly is pulled up, a rewind release button on the bottom, an ASA/DIN set ring surrounding the lens with an indicator window bottom front, optical viewfinder, and a two-step built-in flash unit with a flash ready LED. The flash unit snaps out to the side when you press the red button just under it on the front and then to activate it you slide the red arrowed switch toward the direction the arrow points. This slide switch will not move till the flash unit is deployed. This camera was introduced in 1962 and is mostly made of plastic. It is unknown how many were produced but they are not rare.
