Rangefinder Camera

Rangefinder cameras

Using a built-in window as well as the viewfinder, a rangefinder camera doesn't show the scene you are going to photograph, it shows you what your eye can see; this makes composing a photo much more interesting as the rangefinder camera viewfinder generally has an internal framed surround for the specific lens being used, say a 35mm or 50mm etc, but you can still see the wider picture. It is a much more rudimentary way of taking photographs, but incredibly satisfying as the camera viewfinder generally uses a double ghost image, or cross hairs, that require lining up to make sure the image is in focus.

The purists amongst us who still want to have full control of every aspect of the end photograph, rangefinder cameras are fantastic. Forget autofocus lenses and cameras with through the lens viewing, the rangefinder system works in a totally different way. A perfect photograph becomes very personal and a real art. The rangefinder system is compact and ergonomic to use and have outstanding optics. The lenses are generally prime lenses so fast and crisp, with a few select zoom lenses for those of you who want to get closer to the action without changing position. Leica are the most popular rangefinder cameras and are beautifully manufactured to last a lifetime.
