Miranda 'G', With Clip-On Meter




Miranda 'G', With Clip-On Meter





Here's a late version of the Miranda Model 'G', considered by many to be Miranda's best model ever. It's sometimes referred to as 'The Poor Man's Nikon F' because it was almost as versatile yet sold for half the Nikon's price at just under $200. Hmm, well, OK, it did have a lot of good points, but I'm still a great fan of the earlier 'A' Model of 1957 as my all-time favourite Miranda in the context of their respective eras and what was available in competition back then.

Although concealed by the original lens cap, this 'G' has an f1.8 50mm Auto Miranda lens which is the clue to it being a late example. The original 'G' was introduced in late 1965 and had an f1.9 Auto Miranda, upgraded to an f1.8 like mine in early 1968.

A standard 'G' had no inbuilt metering, but Miranda offered two ways to get around this deficiency. You could either fit an accessory clip-on CDS meter such as shown here, or fit a metered 'T' pentaprism which made it now a Miranda 'GT' according to Miranda Camera Co idiosynchratic nomenclatural terminology (aka 'b******t). Neither add-on gizmo is without its faults, because with the clip-on meter you can't slide off the pentaprism with the meter still in situ, and the 'T' metered pentaprism has such tiny aperture and speed scales that even with 20/20 vision, you'd need to carry a good loup round with you to read the damn things. Luckily, in 1969 Miranda finally introduced the Sensomat, which did have inbuilt metering so goodbye to those various Heath-Robinson type add-ons.

Irrespective of the metering deficiencies, the 'G' came with all sorts of interesting features, such as mirror lock-up, interchangeable screens, oversize mirror and self-timer. However, Robinsonian design influence is still there in the accessory shoe which slides under the rewind crank, but has to be removed before you can actually do any rewinding (sigh).

Back in 1967 while I was serving in the RN in Singapore, I put down a deposit on a Miranda G at a local camera store. They didn't have one in stock but after a call to the Singaporean Miranda distributor, they promised faithfully that they'd have one in within 'just a few weeks, hello, yes?' Well, those few weeks stretched out to a couple of months and still no sign of my 'G'. I had begun to work out how to read the oriental mind a bit better, because when entering the camera shop, realising that if they rushed to their fridge to give me a complimentary bottle of Coke meant the news was still not good.

Eventually I despaired of ever seeing my 'G' and did a deal with them instead over a Yashicamat TLR plus Weston Master V meter, which the camera shop did have in stock. They clearly felt a degree of guilt about the non-arrival of my 'G', or maybe had worked out how much it was costing them in freebee Cokes every time I showed up to check on its non-progress, because I got the 'Mat and Master V for a very good price without even too much of that inevitable oriental haggling.

Some 35 years later, I finally got my own Miranda G via a late night on Fleabuy US. I paid less than I should have done because it was described as having a fault with its lock-up mirror plumbing. It didn't in fact - it was just that it was a little stiff to operate that tiny lever and release button that you can see above the flash synch holes to the right of the lens. Within just a few weeks I also scored the accessory clip-on meter, complete with light-blue Miranda box, rubber eye-shield and HR-inspired accessory shoe. So after 35 years, my Miranda Model 'G' cup finally overflowed. I poured myself a congratulatory ice-cold drink, but not of Coke this time ....












Yashica 635 Outfit




Yashica 635 Outfit





The Yashica Company of Tokyo started out in 1953 as the Yashima Optical Seiki Co, producing Twin Lens Reflex cameras loosely based on German Rolleiflex/Rolleicord designs. They weren't alone of course - just about every other camera maker in Japan (and many overseas ones too) were going the same TLR route. Even the mighty Nikon Company had a 'Nikonflex' in prototype form, but never put it into production.

Around 1958 some significant changes occurred - one was that the Company changed its name to 'Yashica Co Ltd', and another was that it took over control of the ailing Nicca Company which had specialised in quality 35mm stuff. From then on Yashica moved increasingly into the 35mm field courtesy of Nicca expertise, but carried on with TLR stuff too.

So other events around then were the introduction of the 'Yashicamat' TLR, very closely based on the Rolleiflex with an excellent F3.5 Tessar-style 'Yashinon' lens - but at a third of the Rollei's price. Another interesting TLR introduced was the 'Yashica 635', which is loosely based on the Rolleicord but with the addition of something no other TLR ever had, AFAIK - ie, inbuilt dual capability to use both 120 reel film and 35mm cassettes. Mind you, it still required a package of plumbing gizmos (contained in the smaller leather pack front left) to complete the transformation from 120 to 35mm. The 35mm capability was in effect limited to portrait mode, with the 635's 80mm lens giving that typical slight telephoto effect beloved of portrait photogs. Landscape format stuff was definately 'out', unless you were ergonomically gifted to hold the camera up sideways while focussing, etc ...

Franke and Heidecke had marketed an accessory 35mm package called a 'Rolleikin' for their Rolleiflex and Rolleicord, but Yashica beat them - and all other TLR manufacturers - to the punch with the 635's built-in gizmology. They also fitted the 635 with a very capable Copal MXV leaf shutter, offering all that a Synchro-Compur could do with a range of 1 - 1/500 sec speeds plus s/timer. However, for some strange reason known only to the suits at Head Office in Tokyo, both viewing and taking lenses on the 635 were capable but not outstanding F3.5 Yashikor triplets.

You'd have expected surely that the 635 would have deserved the same fine F3.5 4-element Yashinon as the Yashicamat, what with that fancy carry bag and the 35mm capability and all. However, only the very last Yashica 635s were so fitted, before production ceased in 1973. My outfit is clearly an early one, witness the fancy carry bag which was dropped - figuratively speakiing - in favour of the conventional leather F and H-style ERC with all those cutouts to get to the knobs and things, in later models.

Although my first ever TLR was a Yashicamat bought when I was just 18 in Singapore, this Yashie 635 outfit was only acquired a few weeks back locally here in Perth. The recently deceased owner had looked after it very well, keeping all the original stuff apart from the Owner's IB which I downloaded from the Net. God Bless You, Sir.

I've got several TLRs amongst my collection now, ranging from this Yashie 635 and 'Mat, to a 54 Rolleiflex Automat and a 57-ish MPP Microcord - with a Beautyflex and Hacoflex somewhere in between. However, I have to admit I haven't used one in anger since my Singaporean days in the RN in the late 60s. So I might just stick a 35mm film in this lovely old beast and try it out on a few portrait shots. Come here, cat ....
