One of the cheapest twin lens reflex cameras you can get in the world. That is, if you can find one nowadays!
The Pearl River Factory used to be located in the northern rural town of Guang Zhou City, and it made TLR Pearl River cameras as well as some easy to use 35 cameras like this F35 ES. It finally closed in the 1980’s. This F35 ES that I have was bought new in a street shop about 11 years ago and it still works perfect today.
The camera is total dark black color, and shutter is fixed on 125sec, apertures vary from f4-22, no B setting, with tripod thread and a mechanical self-timer, electrical flash available . This camera bears a 38mm lens, so with its “wide” depth of field, the focus is free. On the whole, it is a rather easy to use point and shoot camera especially when shoot in the Lomo way. I got my this camera for about $ 10.
