Gaze at the beautiful interior workings of an Olympus 35RD rangefinder camera

Introduced in 1970s, the Olympus 35RC is a lovely old mechanical rangefinder camera, packing a sharp 42mm f/2.8 lens and offering shutter-priority automatic and manual exposure.

The folks at Ilott Vintage  collect and restore select such vintage rangefinder cameras, and then take images with the cameras for displaying in their online gallery.
