|Mamiya, Prismat CPH, 35mm SLR camera, c1963, mechanicals|
The beautifully constructed CPH reduced to its sub-assemblies during its deep clean on arrival in July 2009. The mirror box and fresnel view screen are to the left, whilst the leaf shutter mechanism (closed) is near to the top right. The gears you can see are the ASA compensation mechanism, it works by screwing out the meter activating rod, making it longer.
