Chinon CM-5

Chinon CM-5


The CM-5 is a 35mm film SLR camera from Chinon. It is a fairly conventional manual-exposure model accepting K mount lenses, and for a new film shooter might be an appealing alternative to other common "student" cameras like the Pentax K1000 (for example, it offers a self-timer). Its light metering uses a familiar 3-LED display (under/correct/over) after a light tap of the shutter release; but unusually, the LEDs light up outside the camera eyepiece in the user's peripheral vision. To conserve batteries the LED indicators shut off roughly 20 seconds after removing pressure from the shutter release. There is no lock to positively disable the shutter or meter.


A excellent 1st slr ready to take on the new challenges of shooting manual. Comes with a auto chinon 50mm F1.7 lens
