Robot I

Traduction de Manuel M

The Robot was as from 1934, a camera very innovating. Although using a 35 mm film (in a specific cartridge K), usually intended to give of 24 x 36 mm, the Robot I allows the negative ones of 24 x 24 mm. Not only that avoids turning the camera to seek a vertical centring, but especially that makes it possible to obtain about fifty exposures. This camera is intended to be slipped into the pocket of the reporters. And what makes waste time with the reporters? To advance the film (or to change map-Film)! Then this camera is equipped with a powerful spring which can to carry the film during…. 24 exposures. This spring gives an inimitable aspect to the Robot. The enormous mushroom is the serrated roller of rewinding of the spring.

There is a yellow filter integrated into the camera. It positions thanks to the small lever which surrounds the slow speeds selector.

Finally the viewfinder, rotary and equipped with a folding mirror of return, which makes it possible to pretend looking at another thing that the concerned subject.
