Kardon Rangefinder 35mm Film Camera with Kodak Ektar 47mm f/2 Lens. Very rare, civilian version. Comes with original case (has come apart into two pieces). This thing is HEAVY, obviously very well made and has stood the test of time. Check out this link for a history of the camera. Camera seems to work great, though I have not run any film through it. Shutter responds to changing speed settings, aperture adjustment works, and film advance works. This belonged to my grandfather and has not seen any use in quite a while, but it has been kept in its case in a climate controlled environment during this time. Cosmetically I would rate this as FAIR – I tried to show in the pics that there is some discoloration in the crevices, and there are a couple of dents in the front of the lens (glass itself is clear of any issues). I have not taken the lens off to check inside the camera body. Please message with any questions.
