The viewfinder informs immediately about the size of the image.

The characteristic of this camera is the mode of adjustment of the distance. A bored stem of a hole is fixed at the ring of focusing. The hole does above numbers engraved on a curved index on an ivorine plate. The system ensures a very good readability of the distances and a facility of focusing, but on condition that looking at the camera by the front.
