Any information about Asahi Super S2 aka Honeywell H2?
About 2 years ago I bought one of these Asahi Super S2 cameras with a 1.8 55mm Takumar lens. Overall it's in good condition.
Anyway, I used it once on a trip and never got around to developing the film, I'm going to do that in the next few days, but I was wondering if anyone knows much about the camera?
Is it a good camera? Reliable? How does it compare with something like the Nikon F?
I am thinking of doing some mountain hiking and fairly rough camping and would like a manual film SLR as backup / partner camera for my Leica M3.
For what it's worth this camera has up to the 1000th shutter speed printed on the dial. Most of the shutter speeds are relatively accurate, though not perfect, good enough for government work, as they say.
