|Regula, Mastra V35, 35mm camera c1958|
The German company of Regula manufactured cameras that were targeted at the crowded mass market and part of their strategy was to produce cameras for chain stores and the like. The Mastra V35 was one such example produced (according to McKeowns) for Photopia Ltd. of Newcastle, UK. The starting point for the design was the Regula III of 1956 and the Mastra took this already fairly basic design and simplified it further. This camera was donated to the collection in March 2006, the donor prefers anonymity.
