The Pearl  I  Konishiroko Kogaku (Konica) - c1949-1950

  Uncoupled rangefinder semi-frame 120 camera. Sixteen exposures per roll.

My Pearl is in mint condition. The shutter release button is gone . Cracked and missing vinyl covers the camera and the rangefinder doesn't work. The viewfinder is the color of a heavy smokers teeth. Shutter speeds below 1/25 don't work. The leather handle is gone.

 Take your digital camera and put it away for sixty years. See if it still works. Hell, I'll bet you won't even be able to get film for it.
