Tower 41

Jump to: navigation, search

Sears offered this oddly-styled, autoexposure camera with a built-in flash reflector in 1961, as the Tower 41 Auto 35mm. The lens designation "Mamiya-Tower Kominar" indicates the camera's actual manufacturer, Mamiya, based on the Mamiya Automatic 35 EEF.

The Tower 39 is a similar camera, but lacking rangfinder focusing. The Tower 41 also has a faster 45mm f/2.8 lens, versus f/3.8 on the simpler Tower 39.

A version of this model appeared briefly under Argus branding around 1962 as the Auto 35mm.
