Alsaphot Cyclope


Traduction de Alphonse Khuu

In the early 50s, the 6 x 9 size is very popular, but the focal length of the cameras using this film size makes them cumbersome.

Lucien Dodin designs a reflex camera with this film size and thanks to mirrors system makes it very compact.

This is what explains the article of the presentation below, dated in 1951 and extract from Photo-Ciné-Revue.

Below is a Cyclope Type 3 with lens Topaz 4.5/105 No. 496115 with shutter Gitzo 200 150 100 50 25 B synchronized flash.
