Miom Photax II

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

Here it is!!! First Photax having taken the name of Blindé; It is about Photax II. If the form is well that of Photax III and IV, some details dissociate it.

The shutter is simple and only the letters T and I in rhombuses indicate the snapshot and the exposure T. This model was manufactured 1938 to 1947, probably with an interruption during the war. Although Photax III is very widespread, this one is very difficult to find. This one comes from the USA!

This Photax also exists in not "Blindé" version. In this case, the end of the tube on which is the lens and the shutter is finished in trunk cone. The crenelated flange is much more obvious.
