Really impressed with the results you guys have from this little monster. Mine seems a little fuzzy, but will give it a few more rolls to see if its my eye or something is a little off

you can adjust the rangefinder alignment easily.
open the film door, on the top rail of the film gate you will see a screw that is the rangefinder adjustment. use some magic tape across the film gate to make a ground glass, and a release cord to hold the shutter open.
Very easy to get perfect focus and check it every so often

Another, even though the viewfinder has a very slight blue tint:

£25 is a brilliant price - they normally go for nearer £100.

£25 is a steal, they are great cameras

I have two 35RCs, the second had been bought on an impulse because it was so cheap. The thing is, the first one has a clean lens but a stiff shutter release button (and light leak problems), and the second one has a really smooth shutter release button but not a clear lens. So, -in terms of cost - is it worth taking it to a specialist repair man and ask him to replace the lens on the second one, or is it something you would perhaps try to do yourselves, with the risk of destroying both cameras?

Hi,

In your shoes, I'd get the one with the decent lens repaired. The other could be sold on ebay etc as spares or repairs. Or - if the light leak is due to the light seals, then try swopping backs; it all depends, of course...

The 35RC has a lot going for it, especially the lens, and little against it. Although some see the need for Wein cells as a disadvantage but I don't. Anyway, good luck with the decision.

Regards, David

I payed €55 for a CLA some years ago ( http://www.om-doktor.de )
It was worth every cent!
This thread reminded me to use it more often. Took it to the sea today, will
post some pics soon...

Thanks, David and wallace. I think I will give the om-doktor a call, even though €55 - or thereabout - is what I paid for the camera in the first place.

These are from the good lens one. I haven't checked to see what the other one gives, yet.

Even with the 40mm lens; if you are careful you can do reasonable portraits.

The 35RC is a great little travel camera, especially on a cycling trip! All done on Legacy 100 with DDX.






My rented bike for the 90km journey. It was....I should say (nicely)...difficult.

Great pictures. I should take mine out again. Fun camera.

This was taken last year at NYC before Super Bowl XLVIII.
They converted Broadway between 34th and 47th Street into Super Bowl Blvd.

Nice shots guys!

I personally just use F8 and average the distance based on my eye for Zone Focus. Since the focus is pretty short, its slightly easier.

A couple from the first roll of film through my newly acquired 35RC. Bought for £10 from our local Facebook selling page. It's got new seals, but the electrics are dead - probably the battery wire. Also, the vertical alignment of the RF is out, so I'm going to get these seen to as soon as funds permit. It's a great little camera, very nice to use.

A great little camera but with the emphasis on little. I sold it as my fat fingers struggled with the controls.
