The camera shown in the link you've provided is mine.  It isn't for sale, but you could contact Visual Instrumentation Corporation - http://visinst.com/ - to see if they might have any leads on SP-1R cameras for sale (the SP-1 had no reflex viewfinder).  Only 110 of these cameras were ever made.

Aloha Glenn,

I Just followed the link & it shows the mekel vic sp-1 Camera that Clearly shows the viewfinder, & if you read the 6th line down it says ' viewfinder: single-lens reflex with adjustable eyepiece".  I know they made 2 versions of this camera, one with a viewfinder & one without.   I have a few of the non viewfinder ones & am looking for one that has the viewfinder.  If anyone knows of one please let me know.

 

I will get in touch with VI, & see if they have any leads..  Glen can you post a picture of your camera?

mahalo,

Erik

I've sent a message (with an image of my SP-1R outfit) to your e-mail address.

Aloha Everyone,

Thanks to those who have joined in the topic.  So here's a couple photos of the Mekel Super 8 Cameras I have.  I have a few of these & could possibly be willing to trade one of these non reflexed ones for a reflexed model.  Again if anyone knows anyone who has one of these Mekel Super 8 with the Reflex viewfinder  please let me know!!MEKEL1.JPG
