Thurston Howell III And His Camera

Thurston Howell III And His Camera
I watched this episode of Gilligan's Island the other night and in it, Thurston Howell III whips out this camera. Who knew he had such a nice camera all this time on the island?

Anybody recognize what kind it is? I've did a preliminary search and can't come up with a manufacturer.

I don't know, but I'd think that rangefinder would be pretty unique with the view lens it has on it. They were on a sight seeing trip and I suppose a camera would make more sense than the trunk loads of money they were carrying. :-)

I do believe you're right, Tony! It looks like an exact ringer for the Petriflex 7.

According to this site: camera-wiki.org/wiki/Petri_Flex_7, that's a light meter on the front of the prism, although it looks like it could be a view or rangefinder, recalling the cheap, promotional SLR-esque cameras of the past that were given out with magazine subscriptions and such!
