The earliest equipment produced by the Miranda Camera Company were accessory reflex housings and adaptors for rangefinder cameras.
The Mirax reflex housing model A was for Leica screw mount cameras. It was modelled after the Leica and Canon housings of the time. The model B was for Contax mount cameras. Miranda offered interchangeable waist level, eye level and magnifying finders for these housings. A selection of different sized levers were included in the housing kits for connecting to the shutter release of each camera.
Very early housings were labelled "Orion Camera Co.", later ones "Miranda Camera Co." Miranda also offered matching bellows units to be used with short mount lenses.
One of the most sought after accessories is an adaptor to allow the use of Contax rangefinder lenses on a Leica screw mount camera, complete with rangefinder coupling.
