KW Pilot Super

The Pilot and Pilot Super Six were sold at the same period of time. The first seems a little more common (very relative) than the second. This is probably due to their respective sales prices, higher in the case of the Super than in the case of the Six. These devices appear to have been abundantly distributed in the United States.
These are single-lens reflex allowing two sizes: 6 x 6 cm and 4 x 6 cm. The Super provides brighter lenses (2.9 or 3.5 or 4.5 against 4.5 or 6.3 for the Six ).
The lens of the Super is removable and it is possible to mount various focal lengths optics. In France, this camera is not very present (too close to the war?), Only one Berthiot 150 mm was available.
The production was stopped in 1939.
