The Hi Matic G was released in 1974. The body is the same size and feel as the later better equipped Hi Matic 7sII. Its a programmed automatic exposure camera with zone focusing marked by four symbols. Easy to use, just whack it on the red auto and the red group symbol, point and shoot and let the depth of field of the sharp 38mm f/2.8 lens take care of the rest. The viewfinder meter needle shows the paired shutter speed and f/stop the camera has selected.

 

Fun with this camera.
Just needed light seal replacement.
