Last year, we covered a news item about a really interesting camera called the NONS SL42 and the team behind the hybrid camera have been in touch to let us know that the NONS SL42 Mark II is now on its way. 

As with the first version, the NONS SL42 Mark II is a really interesting camera that combines Fujifilm instax instant film and M42 lenses to create an SLR instant camera that's compatible with hundreds of classic lenses

The SL42 is a passive EF mount camera, compatible with EF lens, but when used with an adapter, it's also compatible with hundreds of vintage lenses including the M42 mount, Nikon F and Contax/Yashica C/Y.




Its prism-based SLR viewfinder makes it easy to frame and focus while the display panel will show recommended F/# for proper exposure. It's also compatible with the widely-available instax mini film



To reduce vignetting, version two of the NONS SL42 comes with a NONS Format Extender which is an Ef to EF mount adapter featuring 3 glass elements that will extend the full-frame image field (36 x 24 mm) to medium format (62 x 46 mm).
