Lumiere 6 x 6

This folding camera is built with the same body as the Lumiclub. It may be loaded with 120 or 620, films while Pontiac intent to use perforated 70 mm wide film, which explains the height of the of the film compartment.
The expected rangefinder has given way to two small viewfinders quite inefficient: a Galilean viewfinder and a waist level finder like in some boxes.

There is a front shutter trigger type button on the front. An optical photometer "Lumipose" complete the equipment.

The cable release socket is located on the cocking lever and the machine has two nuts for installation on a tripod, one with a  Kodak thread, one with Congress thread
