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.
Just needed light seal replacement.
