The Epson RD-1 was the world's first digital rangefinder camera.  The RD-1 combines proven rangefinder technology with digital imaging to result in an an intuitive camera that captures great photos and uses all the historical M-bayonet lenses.

This camera embodies the best of Japanese camera manufacturing and uses the German Voightlander "Bessa" as it's design model. Sturdy design, rugged and will provide many years of service.  Comes in factory box with 2 batteries: one factor battery and a spare battery.  This camera has been very lightly used and has approximately 1000 frames through it. Scroll down for more photos of the camera and photos taken by this camera.

This camera is the perfect "city camera" that allows discreet photos.  See politically incorrect example below.
