    Actually there was more than one TLR 35mm camera. Agfa also made the Opitima Reflex which used a pentaprism for eye level viewing. Bosley made the C & C22 which have a standard rangefinder in addition to the waist level TLR finder. The Yashica 635 could be converted to 35mm with an optional kit. These cameras are part of my collection filed under WHY???.

      You have an encyclopedic knowledge of old gear! This was the first 35mm TLR I’d ever seen.

    It is no so much knowledge as remembrance as these cameras were made when I was in my late teen’s and early twenty’s.
