Alsaphot Le Maine

Traduction de Sylvan Halgand

Maine was in competition with Savoy II, Focasport II and Babysem. It has the same lens besides as the first, but a less quality lens compared to that of the seconds. On the other hand its shutter is less interesting, because it does not reach the 1/300 and does not have slow speeds. Its release rather rustic and rather prone to is undoubtedly moved during its use. Moreover Focasport II is telemetric, which gives him an undeniable advantage. Its only real competitor (on paper) was Babysem, therefore the characteristics were very close.
Anxious to improve the camera, Alsaphot rather quickly equipped it with a collimated finder. The camera was then famous Maine IIc. This evolution seems a little more current than the version of origin, if I believe of them what I noted on the secondhand trades and in the vacuum-attics.
