Miranda launched the Sensorex in September 1966, It replaced the Automex III and was Miranda's top of the line model. It had match-needle, full open aperture metering and interchangeable viewfinders. It had a preset wheel on the front side to preselect the maximum aperture for the metering system. Early camera bodies had a removable back for a projected motor drive (which never materialized). The camera was discontinued in 1971 and replaced with the Sensorex II.
The interchangeable viewfinder on the Sensorex is removed by sliding a small knob on the rear of the camera, next to the battery housing. Several viewfinders were made, and the camera is fully functional with the viewfinder removed, allowing a top down view straight onto the viewing screen.

- This is not recommended, since the increased light entering via the view-screen can result in over exposure; the use of made-for-purpose Miranda hooded waist-level finders is recommended.
