    Olympus-35 ECR Camera. ECR stands for Electric Camera Rangefinder. Manufactured in 1972 it was the first all electric rangefinder camera made by Olympus. It takes two A640PX batteries which are still available. I found this in a box deep, deep, deep in my mothers garage. Images taken with Pen-f and Oly 45 f1.8.

    Here's the follow on model, mine was made in 1976, I bought it as a carry anywhere camera to compliment my OM2n. kit. This model did not need a battery as it had solar cells around the lens to power the selenium light meter. I tried a roll of BW film last year, the camera although looking a bit bashed up, still works fine, I even used it with a 1976 Agfa flash gun I still have.
