Working Pentacon Penti II With Built-in Light Meter

Sorry, this item has sold.

The Penti may have been the finest compact camera for the later SL film load system. This was a viewfinder camera with a complete set of manual controls, all in rings around the lens: One for distance, one for aperture, and one for shutter speed. It could make 48 18×24mm exposures on one strip of 35mm film.

The Penti's most unusual feature was the long film advance button. Once pushed into the camera the film was advanced to the next frame. After exposure the button appeared again in full length so that forgetting film advance was never an issue with this camera. Voigtländer's Vitessa had a similar feature.

This camera is in excellent working condition with fully working exposure meter. Comes with original leather case in good condition to keep your camera safely stored.
