Chinon is a name not well known outside of Japan. Truth is though, these guys were making lenses and film & photo equipment back in the 1940s. Over time they came to make lenses and other parts for many of the bigger brands. Kodak liked what they did so much that they bought them outright in the late 1970s, so no other competing companies could use their equipment! This camera has the Pentax "Universal" mount, the M42. So we've paired this camera with a Pentax Takumar lens to make the most of that. Remember, the film camera only does the mechanical part of the job, it's the lens that makes the photo and effects image quality. Why not take advantage of that, and get a lower priced camera with a seriously decent lens - we think that's much better than an expensive camera and an inferior lens.

Every FILTR film camera comes with everything you need to start shooting film straight away: 2 rolls of film, new light seals & a new battery.
