Xing Guang
1959-1959

Made in 1959 by Beijing Camera Factory, sold in small numbers in Beijing area. "Star Light" is clearly a cheaper Smena-clone, and timewise fits same era as the more smenaish Chinese cameras (HuaShan & ChangJiang) made in co-operation with USSR. Two f-stpos 11 and 16, holes in a swinging disc. Two shutter speeds B and 1/25s. Fixfocus lens, approx focus from 1,7m to inf. No serial number. Original price 49RMB, case missing unfortunately. Back opens with the large disc in rear cover.
