Halina Paulette



The Halina Paulette was a 35mm viewfinder camera made in Hong Kong by Haking. It was introduced in c.1965. The camera's specifications were:

  • Viewfinder: Bright-line with fixed parallax markings..
  • Focus: Manual - scaled in feet.
  • Lens: 45mm FC Halinar Anastigmat. Appears to be 3 elements.
  • Close Focus: About 3 feet.
  • Diaphragm: f/2.8 stopping down to about f/16.
  • Shutter: Four speed 1/30th to 1/250th +B.
  • Cable Release: Standard screw-in shutter release.
  • Filter Size: 43mm screw fit.
  • Size: 126 x 86 x 70mm (W x H x D).

Many Haking cameras were sold under other names; the Paulette was sold by Sears as the Model 65.

The Halina 2000 appears to be a later, restyled version of this camera.


Halina Paulette Electric

The Halina Paulette Electric is very similar to the Paulette, but with an added uncoupled Selenium light meter. This model was also sold by Dixons as the Prinz Mastermatic III.

The Halina 3000 appears to be a later, 1973 version of the Paulette Electric.
