Many of the Yashica fixed-lens rangefinders have illuminated fame lines. The canon QL cameras do as well. If you want to scale up a bit, the Fuji GW690, GF670, GS645 and their siblings all have illuminated frames. That should get you started at least. There are tons of fixed lens rangefinders out there so it would be difficult to go through them all.


My favorite was the Nikon SP - sold it to buy the Nikon F in 1958.


Leaving the 28mm behind seems more useful than leaving the 21mm. If you're hand printing you can crop much more easily than stitching (I could crop in printing when I did my own years ago). While you do magnify the film grain this way, that's only an issue if you were printing almost as big as possible anyway. The down side of this approach is that your ...


The difference between 21mm and 28mm doesn't sound like all that much. But as focal lengths get shorter the difference per millimeter in focal length gets larger. In theory a 21mm lens should yield about a one third wider field of view than a 28mm lens. For a 35mm film camera that would be the difference between a 75ยบ diagonal FoV for the 28mm lens and a ...


It really is a personal decision. Myself, I would bring the 28mm only and stitch together multiple images to get a wider shot if necessary. While backpacking I'm much more concerned with weight than the few extra minutes a stitch will take to capture and create later in post.


Googling around, it looks like you might be thinking of a Sawyer Bi-Lens 35mm slide viewer. Some were stereoscopes, some weren't, and apparently, some came with a built-in light and some didn't. It looks like there are a number for sale on eBay and the like (mostly with the built-in light and not the diffusion panel on the back), but as these are '50s / ...
