I’ve only had my Miranda Sensorex a month or so and already it’s a favourite. I mostly own and use Voigtländer as favourite brand for vintage cameras, but this came onto my radar and I couldn’t resist especially as it cost less than $30 (about £20) including the lens!
It’s a nice simple camera, solid but not too heavy. Despite some of the controls not being where I am used to them I have found it easy to adapt to so it’s fairly intuitive in that respect. The control layout tends to favour you working in a shutter preference method as the aperture is easy to adjust with your eye to the finder. .
I see me using this camera as my go to SLR and I am very happy with the results so far; I haven’t tried it with colour yet. I might see if I can pick up one or two other lenses too.
This example is the earlier version which came with the 50mm f1.9 lens. The lens has a physical linkage to the camera so metering is accurate without having to stop down the aperture. Also, the viewfinder slides off easily making it useable as a waist level shoot which if can be handy.
These images are from the first two rolls through this camera scanned by my local camera shop); the first being Tmax and the second (last two shots) being Fomapan 100. I have decided I don’t like the Fomapan as the results with this and another camera have been disappointing.
