The Royal 35P fixed lens rangefinder camera was the last camera made by Royal Camera of Tokyo in 1957, featuring:

  • Rangefinder-coupled Tomioka Tominor f1.9 / 45mm lens, to f16, with 40.5mm filter size.
  • Unmarked shutter with speeds: B, 1, 1/2, 1/5, 1/10, 1/25, 1/50, 1/100, 1/300s.
  • 10-blade aperture diaphragm giving a nearly circular pupil.

The 35P was developed on the same chassis as the metered Royal 35M and had a long black-enameled central panel to camouflage its small rangefinder window and mimic contemporary cameras with brightline or parallax-compensating finder windows.
