Lindenblatt was a private-label brand from New York City retailer Cambridge Camera Exchange, evidently named for the company's founder. The KL-2 is their 1983[1] K-mount 35mm SLR and a change from the company's Cambron cameras which were relabeled Soviet models. This was a Topcon camera which was never marketed by that company, but briefly appeared as the Cimko LS-1. It was advertised with a 50mm f/1.7 Zeiss Jena Pancolar lens.

The KL-2 features aperture-priority autoexposure or manual shutter speeds; and unusually, offers a third neckstrap lug for those who prefer to have their camera hang vertically. Above the self-timer lever there is a locking knob for the shutter release.
