After the 1976 bankruptcy of the historical Miranda Camera Company, its brand name was recycled by British retailer Dixons for various house-brand camera equipment. The Miranda MS-1 and Miranda MS-1 Super are two models of 35mm SLR offered in the early 1980s, simply being rebadged versions of the Cosina CT1G and Cosina CT1 Super, respectively. The MS-1 lacks a self-timer and its top shutter speed is limited to 1/1000 sec., while the "Super" offers 1/2000. The model badging has been observed in a few different styles.
Both feature Pentax K lens mounts, and manual exposure settings using a three-LED meter display at the side of the viewfinder. Two LR44 or SR44 cells power the meter circuit, but the mechanical shutter functions at all speeds without battery power.
