Altix Altissa Classic 35 with Meyer-Optik Trioplan 50mm  f2.8

An old viewfinder camera, rather than a rangefinder, with the down-market triplet  lens. I’m just happy it works. The Altissa is from the late 1950s, heavy and solid with a less than squinty viewfinder. This one is bit fogged so it’s even more difficult to see, so I ended up using an auxiliary viewfinder for many of the shots. I only shot a test roll, then left it at the camera shop for weeks because life intervened. In fact, I haven’t had much time for my cameras of late.

A couple of shots from the Altissa on Ilford HP5:
