Artima Arti-six

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

This 6 X 9 (film 120) made of bakelite has some resemblance to certain cameras of mark MIOM.
The lens is on a screwing tube. At the end of the unscrewing, we can feel four stops. They correspond to a distance from focusing of 4 feet, 6 feet, 13 feet and ad infinitum. This scale is mentioned on the body even camera, beside the screwing tube, on the right. According to the thrust of stop, the shutter release is between a horizontal position and a low position (as on the photograph, where the selection of distance is on “Portrait: 4 ft). The other metal miter (in top of the lens on the photograph) is the selector of aperture (9, 12,5 or 18). On the right of the lens another cursor, much smaller and built-in is in the front face. It allows the choice speed (1/25, 1/50 or 1/100 second). Its symmetrical makes it possible to choose between a speed and the exposure.

This camera was manufactured in London at the beginning of the 50s.
