Hi, been lurking around here for quite some time especially in the bns section.

I just want to ask what is a rangefinder camera? or is it a camera type?

Thanks

Hi there,

a rangefinder camera is a camera that (as the name suggests) gives us the distance between the subject and the camera, like some distance measuring equipment. Photos taken from a RF cam is normally very sharp in focus. You can read more on Wiki, the RF cam is very boxy and the lenses are most of the time small in diameter.

Hope this helps,
