Tower 39

Jump to: navigation, search

Sears offered this oddly-styled, autoexposure 35mm camera with a built-in flash reflector in 1961, as the Tower 39 Automatic 35. The lens designation "Mamiya-Tower Kominar" indicates the camera's actual manufacturer, Mamiya, based on the Mamiya Automatic 35 EEF.

The Tower 41 is a similar camera, but with rangefinder focusing. Where the 45mm lens on the Tower 39 only opens to f/3.8, the Tower 41 offered a wider aperture of f/2.8.
