This small rangefinder camera is quite nice, and it somehow reminds of the C35 Konica.
It has a small CdS cell above the lens.
The automatic exposure system offers different f-stop/speed combinations for speed ranging from 1/30th to 1/650th. It is quite specific to this brand.
The lens is a Chinonex Color f2.7/38 mm.
The finder is collimated and has marks for parallax correction. It also indicates on the right side the f-stop/speed combinations offered.
The rangefinder image is clear and contrasted. It is yellow and rectangular.
This is a nice “notepad” camera, which lens – judging by the pictures presented on some website – is excellent.
It retailed for 13,900 yen when it was released.
