Looking for something beautifully retro that's had a good life but still has some years of happiness to live out? Look no further than this beauty of a camera. Born some time in the 60's this gem is perfect for any vintage collection.

This camera comes with a clip on metering system which gives the camera a cool quirky look yet serving function at the same time. The lens with this camera is a 28mm which is more of a photojournalistic approach to your every day photography. Not too wide but not too close up.

This camera has had a good life so it's got some marks and wear and tear. Will you give it a forever home?
