This unique 6×7 medium format rangefinder from 1964 is a bit of an oddball in the world of film cameras… The Koni-Omega Super Rapid is a 6×7 rangefinder, which I’ve begun referring to as the “poor-man’s Mamiya 7”. Despite its affordability, this camera offers exceptional image quality and versatility. Among it’s *ahem* unique features is a racking advance handle. Advancing this camera feels more akin to a video game reload animation than anything else. This handle was also never designed with a locking mechanism, so it’s important to remember which shot you’re on as to not skip through your whole roll.
With its large format negatives, precise rangefinder focusing, and interchangeable lenses, the Koni-Omega Super Rapid is a solid choice for photographers seeking a cost-effective alternative to the Mamiya 7 for capturing stunning medium format images.
