I don’t actually own this camera, but my interest in it is certainly increasing! A chap named Dan K (@ZDP189) on twitter has a top down view of an Minolta 7SII and Olympus 35 RC as his avatar, I’ve not seen a 35 RC in real life, it looks tiny! I asked Dan his opinion of it with my preference for a small manual camera. The answer was positive, but the Petri Color 35 was mentioned as being a very nice alternative. A few tweets back and forth and viewfinder and its merits were mentioned. I asked Dan if he would send me a picture taken through the viewfinder and he kindly obliged!
You can see on the right a matched needle meter and, more interestingly a distance scale across the bottom. I can definitely see the attraction of such a feature! The Petri Color 35 has now been added to my list of cameras I want to try!
