Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

The setting speed of the shutter of this camera is decorated of the Gallic warrior to the winged helmet (several decades before Asterix). Remain to know if the mark draws its name from the drawing, or if the drawing arrived only after the name of the mark!
This Gallic is one of the means of identifying this camera as being mark. The name of the mark is also in the dorsal leather, like engraved on the crutch.
On the other hand, nothing makes it possible to determine with precision the model. Its lens is an anastigmat Gallus 6,3/100 mm the shutter allows the 1/25, the 1/50, the 1/100 and the exposures B and T.

Off-centering in the direction height is possible.
