Mamiya/Sekor 528TL

One of the very worst cameras that I have. It simply escapes me the why of the very existence of this camera. A fixed lens leaf shutter camera? It sounds likea recipe for disaster and it was. You are looking at an extremely rare 528 TL that actually works! The viewfinderis terrible, so dark that focusing is done by guessing. Shutter lag is enormous due to the complication of a second shutter at the the film plane in order to protec the film when focusing. It goes without saying that the triplet lens doesn´t promise much.

 

I think any compact would be far more superior, this is a plastic camera with a very suspicious build. Anyway, some people bougt the concept.
