Petriflex 7 (1964) “The Poor Man’s Contarex” | Petri SLR cameras were moderately popular in the 1960’s, and unusual in having a proprietary breech-lock lens mount, a rectangular microprism focussing spot (for the sake of being different?) and a front-of-body shutter release angled at 45 degrees. No front-of-body release was ever good, but the slanted angle allowed a better grip than releases with horizontal (or even worse) vertical travel.
