The Royal 35P was a fixed lens rangefinder camera made by Royal Camera of Tokyo from 1957, featuring:

  • Rangefinder-coupled Tomioka Tominor f1.9 / 45mm lens, to f16, with 40.5mm filter size.
  • Unmarked shutter with speeds: B, 1, 1/2, 1/5, 1/10, 1/25, 1/50, 1/100, 1/300s.
  • 10-blade aperture diaphragm giving a nearly circular pupil.
  • Did not include non-coupled meter as found in the Royal 35M and 35LE.


The 35P was developed on the same chassis as the metered Royal 35M as a lower-featured variant. It had a long black-enameled central panel to camouflage its small rangefinder window and mimic contemporary cameras with brightline or parallax-compensating finder windows. A small round enameled Royal 'RC' badge on the front plate was added, in the style of Leica.
