This is Revere Eye-Matic EE 127 rangefinder camera. It had been in production in late 50s.
At the time, it was priced 139.99 which is more than $1000 in 2009 $$$.
So it was, expensive automatic camera, beautifully made from polished aluminium and covered in baked enamel. Piece of art. A marvel.
It had targeted the amateur market segment and lost competition to less expensive cameras.
It is easy to use, has one-stroke shutter, bright rangefinder and automatic frame counter.
The lens is not bad at all, but the 2-blade aperture opening has strange form and background bokeh can be rough.
See the pictures below, these are from the first test roll of Efke R100 film I shot in Downtown last week.
