Ricoh Letix

The Letix takes 4x4cm images on 127 film format.
This camera is very close to the Kraft from Echt and it could be a common design of both companies.
Asahi Kōgaku Kōgyō (Asahi Bussan's successor after its acquisition by Riken) rather specialized in manufacturing bakelite camera providing the optical/shutter part and Echt the mecanical part of the body.
Each company offering its own model with metal housing for Kraft and bakelite body for Letix. This bakelite body also presents similarities with that of the Super Olympic as the same size.
