| Walz Envoy M-35 with f1.9 lens|
by David Broglin
The Walz Envoy M-35 is a 35 mm rangefinder with an uncoupled selenium cell that was sold in the late 50's by the Japanese company Walz. It was available with a 1.9/45 mm or a 2.8/45 mm Kominar lens and fitted with a Copal SVL shutter.
The aperture ring is coupled to the shutter speed ring in order to keep the same EV when changing shutter speed. The uncoupled meter gives the EV value to be reported on the aperture ring.
