Vintage Petri 2.8 Color Corrected Super film camera with Orikkor 45mm f/2.8 lens.

Used, cosmetic wear and tear, sold AS IS (see images—case is broken and no lens cap).
The shutter works, but unreliably. Either needs a shutter repair or just keep as a collector’s item.

“Cameras made by Kuribayashi Petri were made to a very high standards.
The F2.8 was a serious, mechanical beast in a compact, businesslike package, and it was produced around 1958 and existed in a series of revisions for approximately four years.
All mechanical (no lightmeters and no batteries to worry about, purely manual), it's a very nice looking 35mm film rangefinder camera with a relatively fast maximum aperture and Carperu leaf shutter that delivers speeds 1-300s + B.
Lens is an Orikkor 45mm f/2.8 featuring six elements in four groups, sharp and with a very special bokeh.
The top plate includes a cold shoe and engraved are few exposure recommendations.
Full-metal construction and all-mechanical, the F2.8 is an exceptional camera that has proudly withstood time and that shows how much care this small (compared to the Japanese giants) camera company put into it.”
