Petri Auto Rapid 2.8 camera

This Petri Auto Rapid 2.8 is mechanically in working condition. Shutter speeds seem accurate. Diaphragm good. Focuses smoothly. Film transport good. The camera number is 018713. Produced 1965. Film: Agfa Rapid film (film cassette not included).

The light meter should be working with a 625 battery (not included), but unfortunately we did not manage to revive it. Which is not uncommon for rangefinder cameras of this age. Maybe it needs a cleaning? However, you can make pictures with this camera, but you should use a separate exposure meter (nowadays available as an app on your phone). If not, this camera is still a very charming addition to your collection.

The C.C Petri 1:2.8 f=45mm lens is scratch free. It does have some dust inside.

Comes with:

Metz 181 flash unit, nr 194420. Functions not tested, meant as purely decorative.
