Regula Super[]

The Regula Super is a 35mm rangefinder camera with built-in uncoupled light meter and interchangeable lenses, built by King for their Regula range, from 1959. The viewfinder has bright lines for 90, 50 and 135mm lenses, selectable by a switch on the top plate.

The aperture and speed rings are on the body; the Quinon lens has mechanically-moved depth-of-field pointers, and a green ring graduated in flash guide numbers, this is set against a film speed scale and allows reading off of apertures along the distance ring. The match-needle Bewi meter produces an Exposure Value, which can be set on the aperture ring, which is then coupled to the shutter ring. The lenses use a bayonet mount, which has the coupling to link the aperture ring to the diaphragm.

  • Shutter: Prontor-SVS 1s-1/300th (1/500th on later models) with X/M flash sync, selected by a switch which also selects the self-timer (V)
