Miranda F - with 50mm 1.9 Soligor lens - vintage SLR camera - Film Photography


This is the Miranda F!

Mirandas were solidly-built SLRs, popular between the 1950s and 1970s with amateurs and even a few professionals. Interchangeable finders made them quite versatile.

Miranda advertisements, with a touch of humour, declared that the Miranda 'Separates the men from the boys’ and promised the photographer the same benefits as a Charles Atlas course. On a beach, the ‘Man with the Miranda’ is admired by a bathing beauty, while a skinny wimp with an ancient bellows camera stands forlornly by.

The Miranda F had no built-in meter, but a unique feature – two shutter release buttons. Mirandas, like other early SLRs, had front-of-body releases, which in later models migrated to the top of the body (where for practical ergonomics they should have been all along). The F was a transitional model which accommodated all personal preferences by providing buttons in BOTH positions. The top button is removable; it screws into a cable release socket.

The camera still works very well!
