Royer Royer IV

Traduction de C. Akgungor.

Although the name of the manufacturer is SITO (Société Industrielle de Technique Optique), this camera is commonly classified as "Royer". Actually this is the name of its designer. Royer with bellows was declined in several models. Their self-timer located on the body (aluminum die-cast) makes easy to recognize the first models. The large self-timer button is very well distinguished. In the later versions, the self-timer became an integral part of the shutter.
The camera uses both the 120 or 620 roll film. A removable internal mask ensures the conversion between two formats (6 X 9 and 4,5 X 6 cm). On the back, there are two frame number windows corresponding to each format.
The following Royers will also be dual format, but with 6 X 9 and 6 X 6 cm frame sizes.
This camera range had a great success, until it was beaten by Savoy (35 mm).


Self-timer on the body. Lens Angénieux 3,5/100 mm. Shutter from 1 sec to 1/300 sec + B.
