The '''Petri Color 35''' is a small [[35mm]], [[leaf shutter|leaf-shutter]] [[viewfinder camera]] with a unique design, released by [[Petri]] in 1968. All its settings are to be done by operating the three little round dials, one for focusing near the [[viewfinder]], and the others on top for setting speed and aperture. It also has a unique collapsible film rewind crank, near its side-located [[hot shoe]]. With bulb mode and 1/15 to 1/250 sec. the choice of shutter speeds is not too bad, and selectable aperture values are from f2.8 to f22. The camera has a built-in coupled [[CdS]] meter (needs a PX675 battery) with a match-needle indicator that's visible in the finder.

The Petri Color 35 is a small 35mm, leaf-shutter viewfinder camera with a unique design, released by Petri in 1968. All its settings are made with three little dials, one for focusing near the viewfinder, and the others on the top for shutter speed and aperture. It also has a unique collapsible film rewind crank, near its side-located hot shoe. The shutter has speeds 1/15 to 1/250 second, plus 'B', and selectable aperture values are from f2.8 to f22. The camera has a built-in coupled CdS meter (needs a PX675 battery) with a match-needle indicator, visible in the viewfinder.
