Rollei XF35

Manufactured between 1974 and 1980 in Singapore, the Rollei XF35 is well-built, very pocketable 35mm rangefinder, slightly larger than the viewfinder Rollei 35. It is a match-needle camera, meaning that the shutter speed is linked to aperture setting. The XF35 originally used PX625 mercury batteries. Suitable replacements are difficult to find/calibrate.
