1960's Miranda Sensorex
1960's Miranda Sensorex
The Miranda Sensorex is a 35 mm SLR system film camera manufactured by Miranda. There are seven almost-the-same but distinct versions of Sensorex. There are two very peculiar features in Miranda: the interchangeable prism (the Nikon F was the only other camera at the time with this feature), and the front-mounted shutter release. Low noise shutter and vibration-free mirror mechanism. After removing the pentaprism, the camera is fully functional, can still meter and focus, especially handy for close-up work. Sensorex was the flagship model at that time. Miranda was apparently the first Japanese SLR manufacturer, and for a time, Miranda used to compete with Nikon and Topcon for build quality and optics. The Miranda was also sold as Soligor in Europe. The Miranda Camera Company, originally named the Orion Camera Company, manufactured cameras in Japan between 1955 and 1978. Their first camera was the Miranda T. Unlike many Japanese made cameras, Miranda did not make their own lenses and had to rely on other manufacturers to supply them. Many Miranda SLRs had advanced or sophisticated features for their day. Almost all Miranda SLR's shared the same basic lens mount, but the mount complexity increased over the years to accommodate more aperture and metering controls. Unable to keep up with the increasing manufacturing automation of the larger manufacturers, and the increasingly sophisticated electronics of competing cameras, Miranda ceased producing cameras.
