Background: Kowa SE-T 35mm Single Lens Reflex camera made by Kōwa Kōki Seisakusho (Kowa Optical Works in English) around 1965. The SE-T was part of a range of leaf shutter SLR cameras made by Kowa from about 1960 – 1972. Earlier Kowa SLRs like the SE-T had a fixed lens that had a variety of screw in adapters to change the focal length of the built in 50mm lens. Later Kowa SLRs came with a proprietary bayonet lens mount. Kowa SLRs like the SE-T were nicely designed and compact SLRs that came with good lenses and a competitive list of features.
