petri colour 35
was doing some cleaning and digged out this camera from my brother's stuff.
it is a manual camera, with a 40mm f/2.8 lens.
fungus has made the lens its home.
anyone has knowledge about this camera?

It's a nice compact rangefinder from the 70s, I believe. 40/2.8 collapsible lens, I think it uses a mercury cell, but might have a replacement alkaline cell (not sure if it's 625 or another kind).

mercury cell - you mean battery?? the unit is manual.
what is a rangefinder?? i keep hearing it, but do not know what is it.
what do you mean by collapsible lens??
the lens is infested with fungus, worth getting it cleaned??
