Wirgin Edixa 16 U

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

This subminiature is used with film 16 mm. It makes it possible to take 24 photographs of 12 x 17 mm. Its lens is a very good Xenar Schneider f2.8/25 mm, whose focusing goes 40 centimetres ad infinitum. The shutter comprises speeds from 1/30 to the 1/150 secondes. Speeds are coupled with the diaphragm apertures. This coupling is unlockable for the photographs with the flash. An electric eye can connect on the right side of the camera and it is coupled with the shutter.
It was manufactured towards the beginning of the Sixties, in two versions: with lens Travenar 2,8 or lens Xénar 2,8. According to the catalog Natkin 1966, the first version cost 357 francs , the second 473 francs . The cell cost 123 francs .
