Miranda Auto Sensorex EE is an example of the latest Miranda models produced. It was introduced in1971 and the production took end in 1977. It is all- mechanical and like Miranda cameras in general it is well-built and feels reliable. Miranda Auto Sensorex EE has a shutter preferred automatic exposure system, removable prism and it is aimed to professional markets as well as to the demanding amateurs. Alike average- and spot metering is arranged by placing the sensor behind the mirror. This design allows TTL metering even when the prism housing is removed.

The history of Miranda cameras begun in 1955 when Orion Camera Co. released the "Miranda T". After a year the company changed its name to the Miranda Camera Company.

This example like most of Miranda SLR cameras is used by an amateur and is in very good condition. In the late sixties Miranda was a respectable competitor to Nikon but still most cameras were sold to consumers and this explains why the ones that you find are usually cosmetically in good condition.

The Miranda 35mm SLR camera developed very comprehensively over the twenty years of production.  The special and unique feature in several models of Miranda SLR cameras is the removable prism. The prism can be removed by pushing the small slider and pulling back on the prism housing. The focusing screen is now a usable waist level finder and because of the special design the TTL metering can be still used. This is useful when taking close-up photos. Despite Miranda cameras are of good quality and quite versatile cameras the company couldn't respond to a competition and production of SLR cameras ended with the DX-3 of 1978.
