It is interesting to note that Officine Galileo was a small but very innovative lens and camera maker. The Legendary GAMI 16 was, along with the Compass II, were the most extraordinary Sub-Mini. The Condor I is a highly precision camera and of superb construcion inside and out. This Improved 1949 model was produced for a very short time. It has slow speeds from 1 sec. Strap eyelets and no protruding base stand. It was their most Beautiful product. And a real pleasure to use. Some serious collectors even claim it was comparable in construction and beautiful finish when compared to the Leica IIIC!! Unfortunately the company was not very successful in marketing their cameras. Making it an interesting and hard to find collectibles especially. In this superb condition. I collected some of the most interesting models and will be listing others. There is no hidden reserve and my asking price is commesurate with the Unique Superb “Collectible Condition”.
