The Prinz 35-E is a compact rangefinder camera for 35mm film. With a design based on the Konica 35, it was most likely built for Dixons by Cosina in the mid-1970s, since the lens is marked Cosinon and the body Made in Japan. It has programmed auto-exposure using a CdS meter, with a needle display of the shutter speed & aperture in the viewfinder.
