The Fujica V2 is a rare to find 35mm rangefinder camera that uses a leaf shutter based lens. This japanese camera was introduced by Fuji in 1964. The fixed lens is a 6-element 4.5 cm with an aperture of f/1.8 to f/22. The shutter of the Fujica V2 is provided by Citizen with speeds capable from 1 to 1/500s and B.
The focusing mode is the most interesting thing in this camera and is handled by turning a thumb wheel on the back of the camera like the Voigtländer Vitessa.
It is a fully manual camera, which means that the photographer must adjust all of the settings manually in order to take a photograph.
This Fujica’s model has a built-in light meter (that circle in the front part of the camera body) that helps the photographer determine the correct exposure settings for a given scene. Unfortunatelly, most of the Fujica V2 light meter are not able to work properly nowadays.
