Chronology of cameras Carena 

This little viewfinder camera seems to be a close parent to the Carena 35EE to which it seems to be a less luxurious version. His viewfinder is pink tinted but still clear, so that all informations are clearly readable even in low light. It indicates the chosen exposure and shutter speed with a needle and the focusing distance by a green square moving between positions(1m, 1.5m, 3m and infinity). 

The lens has no brand but seems to be the same 38 mm f:2.7 as the 35EE. Focusing is made by 4 symbols.

The exposure is automatic or aperture priority (6 steps going from 2.7 and 16, only 2.7, 8 and 16 are written). Film sensitivity is chosen by a little slider under the lens.

The shutter also makes the aperture, there is no diaphragm.
