Default The Heavy & the Beauty - Miranda Sensorex



Alexander from Jerusalem knew about my crazy bug with film cameras and tried for a long time to raise my interest in his SLR’s collection. A trip to Jerusalem doesn’t take more than one hour drive from Tel-Aviv, but still, I had no big rush to see a Canon or a Nikon. About a week ago he called me and said he has something very special for me. An SLR I just can’t miss. When I asked which SLR he was talking about, he whispered only one word: “Miranda…”. “Miranda who?” I asked. “Check it out” he said, and the conversation was over. I went quickly to the nearest Internet portal – in this case, my Ayo (That’s how Gefen calls my IPhone), and googled “Miranda camera”. Well, of course I was interested – Miranda is a beauty.

I haven't seen one of those in years! Almost looks like a Chrysler logo on the finder.

Hi!
A Sensomat RE was mi true first camera because I couldn´t afford the Sensorex. Still have it and still fires as new. A great camera that is usually underrated today. Hope you enjoy your new baby!
Cheers
Ernesto

It has been a long time since this was posted but Hey.
Beautiful camera you have there. I picked a 1969 Sensomat up at a Thrift Store for $20. Needed a little work to get it up and running but now looks and works great. I found a Waist Level Finder on ebay and have 50mm 1.4 lens on the way.

Nice photos!

Back in the 1960s, Consumer Reports magazine declared that Miranda Sensorex was the “best buy for the money.” Their declaration and great camera features (such as interchangeable viewfinders and both bayonet and screw-mount lens mounts) greatly influenced my decision to select the beautiful Sensorex as my first SLR.

However, my Sensorex broke three times within the first two years of its three-year warranty. The third time it broke was when I was hundreds of feet in the air covering the maiden voyage of a new aircraft that the local university had just acquired. Thank goodness a backup twin-lens reflex camera that I carried allowed me to complete my assignment.

My horrible experiences with my brand new Miranda Sensorex convinced me that it was not reliable. I could never recommend it to anyone.

This is to be expected. The big hint is that the company uses
Soligor lenses as original equipment.
