Introduced in 1971, the Miranda Sensorex EE (also known as Auto Sensorex EE) is a shutter-priority, auto exposure 35mm film SLR camera introduced by Miranda in 1971. The standard lens was an Auto Miranda E f/1.8 50mm.

It uses a focal plane shutter with speeds of 1 to 1/1000 sec. plus a B mode. The self-timer has a delay of 10 seconds. Metering patterns are switchable between partial and spot. The full aperture TTL exposure meter uses a CdS cell with a range of 3 to 18 EV (ASA 100 with 50mm f/1.4 lens). The viewfinder prism housing is interchangeable.


Lens mount: Miranda mount - 4-claw bayonet and 44mm screw mount (yes it's got two different lens mounts in one to accommodate backwards compatibility with earlier lenses).

Viewfinder/Focus: Viewfinder magnification 0.92X with 50mm lens at infinity, field of view 96%, condenser and Fresnel lens combined, interchangeable viewfinder, focusing screen with micro-split image rangefinder.

Shutter: Focal plane, B. 1-1/1000 sec., built in self-timer with maximum delay of 10 seconds.

Meter: Exposure Meter light measuring at open aperture, built-in TTL CdS meter with full EE-coupling, light sensor within the mirror, partial light measuring, and spot light measuring. The EE coupling can be disconnected when shooting at speeds outside its range by depressing the override button located in the centre of the shutter speed dial.

Exposure: Automatic shutter priority, plus manual override. The meter remains operative in manual mode.

Film Speed: ASA 25-1600.

Flash: FP and X, automatic synch to X at 1/60 sec., cordless hot shoe.

Film Advance: Winding angle 180°, marginal angle 25°, ratchet advance.

Frame Counter: Automatic count-up and reset.

Rewind: Via crank and bottom release button.

Size: 144 x 93 x 87mm (with f1.8 lens).

Weight: 950g (with f1.8 lens).

Battery: Mallory PX675 1.35 v mercury cell (or use the equivalent WeinCELL MRB675 zinc air cell).
