Konishiroku Mamiya 35 1 Rangefinder Camera made in Occupied Japan. Hexar 50 mm f3.5 lens. Excellent condition, noting the small amount of corrosion on the base, and the fact that the slow speeds below 1/25 stick. Please study the photos and ask questions if you are not sure about anything. Information found on the web. Building on the success of the mid-size Mamiya-6 folder, which had quickly developed a reputation for reliability and unique design, Mamiya built an equally unique 35mm model. It was the first Japanese camera to automatically cock a leaf shutter as the film was wound. The Mamiya 35-I , c. 1949, with a fixed 5cm f/3.5 Hexar lens in a Copal B shutter, had speeds from 1 sec. To 1/200 and B. It featured a knob-wind film advance, and also adopted the unique backfocusing arrangement of the larger Mamiya-6, in which the lens did not move during focusing. Instead, the entire film plane itself moved within the camera, through the same ingenious mechanics that focused the Mamiya-6. There were problems, however, keeping the film flat in the 35mm format and the back-focusing 35mm was abandoned. The item “Mamiya 35 1 Rangefinder Camera made in Occupied Japan.
