Petri 2,8 Color Super

Traduction de Alphonse Khuu

In 1958 with this 2.8 model, Petri launches its "COLOR SUPER" superb line.

This camera line will give birth to three beautiful cameras (plus two variants with different cell) whose quality, both optical and mechanical, is given as excellent.

The look of these cameras is very original and harmonious.


• Viewfinder with automatic parallax correction and with framelines for a 45mm lens, with a yellow, comfortable size and rectangular rangefinder view.
24x36mm frame size for 135 films
• Leaf shutter signed "PETRI CARPERU MXV" with 9 shutter speeds: from 1 to 1/500 sec + B.
• Fixed lens ORRIKOR A.C f 2.8 / 45mm. Depth of field chart on the lens. Minimum aperture at f22. Coated lens as the inscription indicates "super color corrected".
• Wind lever with an integrated mechanical frame counter.
• New reminder of used film on the cover
• Rewind wheel
• Accessory shoe.
• Selective M and X synch on the shutter

The copy I am showing here is scarce.

It comes from a small commemorative line for one million two hundred thousand cameras (1,200,000) produced by the brand.

It cost 14,800 yen
