Chronology of cameras Cadot 


Cadot often envisioned original solutions to improve cameras. The Folding Series I and Series II are no exception.

The cameras from both series are featured on page 8 of the 1905 catalog of the Grands Magasins du Louvre. They are 9 x 12 format cameras made of mahogany, covered in Morocco leather.

The focusing system is peculiar, if indeed it can be called that, as a cylindrical viewfinder is attached to the flap, on the movable part that supports the lens carriage. The movement of the movable part of the rack is ensured by two wheels which are embedded in the flap, and not on its edge as is usually the case. The viewfinder is therefore intended for waist-level viewing, but its position at the base of the lens does not make it easy to use.
On the edge of the flap, there are two rings which may be used to lock it in the closed position.

Series I

The cameras in Series I are loaded with a single plate.

The models of this series are:
