Neoca 35 at Zoo and Home

Neoca 35, Model IVS, made in 1959.
Neoca Camera Co., LTD, Japan.
Coupled rangefinder with brightline framing.
No onboard meter.
Lens is Neokor f:2.8 / 45mm in Citizen-MV shutter, B, 1 second to 1/400.
M and X sync switchable, pc socket and cold shoe.
Self timer.
Styled a bit like an old Nikon Rangefinder, isn't it?

This camera came to me from a friend in England. It arrived a few years ago as a plastic baggie filled with loose parts. I reassembled it, then film tested it. Images showed light flare. Recent inspection revealed some fungus on inner lens surfaces. So I tore down the lens parts, cleaned, and reassembled. Here are some results from new film test.

Film was Konica Minolta Centuria 200 print film.
Some shots were here around the house, most of the roll was from today at the St.Louis Zoo. Not a busy day there for a Sunday, partly cloudy, temperature in mid 40s Fahrenheit.
All images are 2006 E.J.Kowalski.
