Graflex Ciro 35

After being purchased by Graflex in late 1949 early 1950, the former Ciro 35 (formerly Cee-Ay 35 by Candid Camera Corporation) was re-introduced as the, wait for it, Graflex Ciro 35 which itself was used as the basis for the Graflex Graphic 35.

It has a split image coupled rangefinder and Alphax Synchro-Matic shutter. The focusing lever has nice long throw, unlike the interesting but wonky dual triggers on the Graphic 35 and the Wollensak f3.5 lens is crisp.
