Hello friends,

I would like to ask Juhani, Alain and many others to place the serial numbers of their "numberless" Elikons in our Wiki Catalogue. Thanks in advance!


Regards,
Aidas

#90 37 379 SovietCams
#90 37 536 SovietCams
#90 88 223 Juhani
#90 88 853 Alain Berry

Do you see a pattern? I am 101% sure 88.853 was NOT made in 1990!
But what does 37 and 88 in the middle mean?

Juhani,

It's pleasure to deal with you! That's why I asked you to share the information about numbers you have. It seems to mee, that 37 and 88 mean particular batch number, and not the total amount of cameras issued ...
Let's wait for few more numbers, ok?

Regards,
Aidas

A quick question about this one... Does the flash detach? I seem to have bought a slightly different version of it, it does not have the flash socket but a rewind knob instead... from the picture I guess it seems like the flash socket is detachable.. just making sure I got the same camera...

Shoe is detachable, and mounts on side with one screw in the middle, covers rewind crank. So congrats, which serial?
