The Dodécagraphe is a detective for 12 plates (Dodeca = 12 in Greek). Its characteristic is to have in frontage a pull knob (long) having a double function; that to cock the shutter and that to make pass the plate which has just been impressed from the magazine located at the back of the camera to a receptacle which is under the camera.
On the front, there is only one window of viewfinding, common to the two viewfinders. Into symmetrical, the exposure counter is found. Its position is unusual.
Beside the button of shutter release, there are two cursors with needle. That of left hand makes it possible to choose between pose and instantaneous, that of right-hand makes it possible to choose between F (closed) and O (open). The F must block the camera.
Publicity comprises an error of typography. He is written DUodécagraphe instead of Dodécagraphe.
