The Fujica 35-ML is a 35mm film camera from Fuji, advertised in the US beginning in 1958.[1]

It is a minor update to the previous Fujica 35-M released months earlier.[2] It features a coupled parallax corrected rangefinder. Unusual features are a baseplate winding lever, thumbwheel focus on the rear of the body, and a rewind crank turned 90° sideways.

The Fuji Synchro MXL is a leaf-shutter-based design that also uses EV numbers for the exposure system. Variations with Citizen shutters have also been seen. The lens is a Fujinon 4.5cm f/2.8. Faster versions with a f/2 lens were also sold.
