Franka Solida 2

By Nikonuser1
My second Franka, this one has the Ennagon Lens, it is still a very good lens, it has a built in rangefinder, again takes 2 1/4 square roll film. sadly the range finder is faulty.
In version 3 the little serated wheel top left of the camera is the range finder adjuster.

A huge thanks to all for your comments and votes on my last uploadSmileSmile

Isn't it funny? Buy the cheaper lens and get a rangefinder; the dearer lens but no rangefinder. Both cameras look in extremely good nick, you must look after them, Cliff.

Good to have a photographic record. Set me wondering- can one still buy film today?

How interesting, made me to take a look into web, but there isn't much info about it, but I saw an e-blogger page with the pictures taken with this camera is really very good, especially the rich color that digital still hasn't been able to produce...
