GAF Memo 35 EE 02-13-11

Produced 1979 / early 80s by Chinon for GAF Corporation
Film type 35mm
Lens Chinon Chinonex f:2.7 / 38mm
Focal range 3.4' to infinity
Shutter speeds B, 1/30-1/650
Viewfinder coupled rangefinder
Exposure meter lens mounted CdS with viewfinder needle (aperture and shutter)
Hotshoe and PC Sync
Fast-action wind lever
Also sold as the Chinon 35EE.
There is no manual aperture or shutter operation, aperture and shutter speed combos are programmed together in a progression.
For flash photography you set the flash guide number on the lens barrel and focusing then is limited to
the flash range at that ASA.

Mine came from online auction. I cleaned it and installed all new light seals.
Then I replaced the "guitar strap," which was overwhelming in size for a camera so tiny and light, and replaced it with a shoe string.
For my test run I loaded up with a roll of slightly outdated Fuji Film Superia X-TRA ASA 400.
The thaw was on, sun and temperatures up into the 60s.
I shot the roll at the Transportation Museum in St. Louis County.
