Film A serious compact rangefinder review :)

Feb 7, 2012
Hi mates!

Finally i had some free time to write something on my photoblog.

I wrote a review of the Revue400SE, a fixed lens rangefinder sporting a 40mm 1.7 lens. It's probably the same camera of the Minolta Hi-Matic 7sII with some minor differences.

Here is the review:

Please tell me if you find some inaccuracies in my post!

Thanks for this. Sound like a nice little camera. I have the Bessa R, but am looking to acquire an Olympus 35 SP as a fixed lens alternative. Once I have that, I'll consider this more carefully.

I'm sorry i attached the wrong link - i updated it so now it's working well.
Btw thank you all! You are too kind, i am really happy that you appreciate my photography.
@Lawrence: I also owned a Bessa R and a Bessa R3. They definetively have an amazing viewfinder, but i didn't like the plastic feel and the shutter - it's too loud and it doesn't allow you to shoot safe under 1/60s. I also didn't like the metering pattern - so strange! Btw olympus 35 sp looks great too ;)

I have the Konica S3 - it has a different lens & to the Revue but otherwise looks identical

At least yours is working - my S3 needs a fix & I can only shoot at 1.8 (plus overide with flash installed & recalculating iso)
