The Petri Color 35 is a small 35mm, leaf-shutter viewfinder camera with a unique design, released by Petri in 1968. All its settings are made with three little dials, one for focusing near the viewfinder, and the others on the top for shutter speed and aperture. It also has a unique collapsible film rewind crank, near its side-located hot shoe. The shutter has speeds 1/15 to 1/250 second, plus 'B', and selectable aperture values are from f2.8 to f22. The camera has a built-in coupled CdS meter (needs a PX675 battery) with a match-needle indicator, visible in the viewfinder.
