Makinon MK-V

The lens manufacturer  Makinon came to the cameras market in 1979, during the Paris fair, a small and light reflex, named MK.
It was equipped with a built-in flash unit and came with a lens 2.8 / 50 mm not protruding more than 22 mm from the body. The chosen lens mount was the K. It was a semi-automatic item with textile curtain type shutter, no slow speeds (1/60 to 1/500, sync to 1/60). The flash must be pulled up to be turned on.
MK-V model is in the standard of the SLR of the time
The device displays all the decoration which was then located on the lenses of the brand: green stripes everywhere, shining Makinon logo with the M in a particular calligraphy, green writings around the lens etc ...

Makinon is probably not the real manufacturer of this device; its similarity with the Cosina CT-10 is great.
