Traduction de Manuel M

“It was my first camera of reflex type (2 lens). Based on the principle of Rolleiflex, this 24 X 36 has the following characteristics:

Prontor shutter 1s to 1/500 dryness, without self-timer
Apotar lens 2.8 /45 mm
Reflex viewfinding with ground-glass very luminous, rangefinder Dodin
Cocking by fast lever, multi-blows, placed under the sole.
Focusing by helicoid displacement of the lens group (viewfinder and taken of exposures)
A retractable magnifying glass offered an viewfinding to eye level
A Galileo viewfinder for the exposure moving was incorporated in the retractable cap, the inversion of the displacement direction on the ground-glass became enough the sports shots diverting (like Rolleiflex.)
A macro add-lens (alas lost) allowed a 0.5 m exposure with parallax correction
The lens hood with fitment did not stay unfortunately places much longer
The exposure counter was of decreasing type
A small button with the back made match the number of the maximum of exposures
A memory assistance of the type of film was next to the counter
 
I bought this camera in 1962.”
