Beirette k100

Jump to: navigation, search

Another version of the DDR (Eastern Germany) Beirette compact camera.

It's a very simple viewfinder, no lightmeter, no batteries, and shutter cocking only works when a film is inside. It takes normal 135/35mm film. It has a Chromar 52mm f/11 lens and two shutterspeeds which are 1/30 and 1/125. These are marked as cloudy/flash and sunny.

There is a connection for a remote shutter release cable right underneath the shutter release knob. Focussing is done by a simple distance scale on the lens.

Shown here with original box, pouch and manual.
