Chronology of cameras Whitehouse Products 

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

The firm Whitehouse Products was located at Brooklyn (N.Y.). It manufactured these small 127 towards the end of the 40s. Very correct use of enamelled metal and the moulded matter make of them cameras very attracting. The lens and the shutter release are located at the end of metal bellows which should be drawn ahead. The difference between I and II is the possibility of choosing on the first model (in top) between a speed (1/50 secondes) and the exposure B. This possibility disappears mostly on II.
The lens is Whitar 11/46 mm, with two elements, treaty. There are also certain coloured variants difficult to find.
