The Espresso Camera

Published by dirk on

Small, black, fast. This is how you can describe the Revue 35CC. The camera was also sold as Chinon Bellami and has a very unique opening mechanism using the advance lever. Some people call it a ‘barn door’ camera, as the lever opens two doors and extends the Lens.

Features are minimalistic: 35mm f2.8 Lens, Program AE, Scale Focus.
A dedicated (automatic) Flash can be added to the camera, which makes the camera perfect as pocketable party cam.

Example pictures are shot on Ilford Delta 400 Professional, developed with the Delta Recipe


Dirk Essl is the founder of And has done a tremendous amount of coffee development in the past.
