    Or is this somewhere along the argument of ... it's a flash gun, not an SLR with an internal flash.

    Or... it's a motor drive, not an SLR with an internal motordrive.

    no lah he's just saying that ad is just selling the rangefinder mechanism not a full camera.... relak dude...
    lomo got so many type... the lomography ones got no RF model...
    holga is a viewfinder not using the rangefinder...
    RF is using two windows to combine into one prism which you see. So that the object u want coincides in both images, while unfocused images have slight overlap gaps.

    like using ur two eyes to focus on diff distances, the one u want will be nicely positioned on both eyes, but others will be offset by a bit.. stereo vision...
    holga just uses the normal window like compacts..

    Yup, it's just that. A rangefinder - basically a device for you to measure distance.
