I got one 2m before it was stollen.

Rock steady image. Very good lens (10/100) but no matter to try other brand lenses, until you change the mount.

Quite quiet, not silent.

Thanks Philippe!


Do you think you can add the Kinor CX-2M, to your awesome blog?

Hi Rudy,

Why not ? But my blog "philosophy" is about two cheap and sturdies cameras. And K3 and Filmo are very little expensive... Moreover they have spring motor and this is the point.

the Kinor is actually pretty cheap, but the specialist of this camera is, by far, Olex. The focus of my blog is rather to gather all the helpful tips and small practical ideas, such as which is for the K3, to focus very close by simply unscrewing the objective ...
