Great condition with few age related patina which find only adds to its character. comes with gorgeous case. The light view finder is clear and bright.
A classic in design, this is a Viewfinder that will slip in your Bag and produce stunning results. In excellent condition. If you are looking to get into photography or want to add to your existing collection this is for you. Firing with all speed and remarkably consistent. As with all cameras of this age the lower speeds do tend to be a little slow but this has been looked after and lubricated.

The Cortina 500 is a viewfinder camera for 35mm film. It was made in Hong Kong, originally as Halina 500 by Haking. It is similar to the Olympus Trip 35 but uses a battery powered CdS metering system. It was launched in 1972.

The Brenner Auto 2000 appears to be a rebadged version

All 3 cameras have an Anastigmat F=40mm 1:2.8 lens and are zone focused by 4 pictograms but unlike the Olympus Trip 35 they cannot be seen from the viewfinder.

The CdS-controlled shutter has speeds from 1/40-1/200 sec in automatic mode (marked A). The shutter release will be locked in automatic mode when light is too dim and a red flag will appear in the viewfinder. The aperture range is from f/2.8 to f/22. There is no off switch so capping of the lens is needed to preserve battery life. The metering system requires a now defunct PX625 mercury cell but modern equivalents are available.
