Classic Cameras Friday! Olympus 35RC ~ 1970


Hello, and Happy Friday!

Another Master piece, the Olympus 35RC, have a Canon Canonet like this one, need some work, will do and post photos later, enjoy!

  • One of the smallest 35mm automatic/manual rangefinders
  • $100 with f2.8 lens in 1970 ($562 in 2010 dollars)

To quote the Olympus corporate history site:

“Known as ‘Richard,’ the Olympus 35RC first went on sale in 1970. With a body similar in size to the Pen cameras, this coupled-rangefinder camera had a shutter-priority AE system. The aperture setting could also be controlled manually, making this an ideal secondary camera.”

Cesar Here!.... Information Technology run thru my vains from 8 - 5. When not at the Office I drive a Toyota FJ Cruiser Trail Team Edition and a nice Photog Paraphernalia back pack (LowePro Dry Zone 200), inside ===> Nikon Cameras and lenses (Nikon D700, Nikon D300, Nikon F100) and many other tools, of course. Photography and Adventure are ingredients in my day to day life mixed with motorcycles and outdoor activities; and I do want to share My Experiences here with You.
