LOMO SOKOL AUTOMAT 35mm RANGEFINDER CAMERA + 50mm f2.8 INDUSTAR 70 LENSThis is the export version of the 1970 Sokol Automat.I’m pretty sure that you could take pictures with this camera but I’m not at all sure that all functions are working as they should.I cannot get any batteries to work so the auto exposure setting definitely is not working at present although it may if you can get some current to it.The good news is that the  aperture and shutter speeds can be set manually so the camera can be fired. The rangefinder is clear and accurate and the viewfinder is nice and bright.All the shutter speeds are firing but I cannot vouch for accuracy. Note that the shutter must be cocked before apertures or speeds can be changed.The lens is clean and clear with just the usual dust visible  that you would expect from a flashlight inspection on a vintage camera.Please regard this sale as a no returns as the camera is sold as a collectable with known issues.
