Week 260 - Canon Pellix

Canon Pellix
I hadn't heard of the camera until I found it in a charity shop (complete with another lens and flashgun) for £10. At first I thought it was broken, as the mirror didn't move, but Google told me that this is a fixed, semi-transmitting mirror, to allow metering to take place near the film plane. The downside is that you loose light through the mirror, effectively reducing the aperture of the lens.
