In the past week, I've had the opportunity to take pictures with the great camera Petri Color 35.
It is a compact camera with a rather singular focusing system.
The viewfinder. Distance/zone-focus scale at the bottom; exposure indicator to the right.
Top: Flash socket and rewinding arm. Below you see wheels for aperture setting and shutter speed control. On the left side is the (black) wheel for focusing. The lens has no focus ring. The ring on the lens sets ASA/ISO value.
The back and bottom of the camera is removed when loading film, as on my rangefinders Fed 2 and Leica CL.
The camera having a short rest at a coffee shop in Malmo.
I've used a colour roll which is to be developed in the coming week. Exciting!
