Con't tempt me, you know I love Almaz!!!

1) It looks like a Canon, especially A-1 but is tihs only same like with A103 and Nikon-F2: only looking?

2) Does it work? (102/104 that I konw do not, at least meter does not)

3) Has it anything common / similar with A103?

4) Does it really meter from film?

5) What does one cost, 2.000e or 10.000e?

hi Juani,
about price...schutttt..it is indecent price (you know it came from Helsinki trader...)
it work , but only one mechanical speed (1/125 ?)
lightmeter work through a semi clear miror (key hole shape) look at picture:
really different than A 103 (i will show you in catalog whith 104 too...please wait
i think shutter is "copal seiko" made (?) you know there was a test (join venture ?) in 1980

OK and thanks. So they really did try with severa totally different cameratypes in the Almaz-series: wonder what the total cost was to the organisation to build so many different pre-series?

it is a strange and enigmatic, "blood and tears" story in the erratic technological area period 80's...something like a "sabotage"....i still send you my version (i must scan many pages for you Juani)..(now i added A 102 on catalog)
