Echassoux et Ducom Pankoras

Traduction de Manuel M

The cameras built/structure under this name by MM Echassoux and Ducom are addressed to the serious amateurs, with those which knew to understand that photography did not only consist in “pressing the button”. These cameras were studied to give to the operator the maximum of resources with the minimum of mechanism.
The plates are enclosed in simple, light and sure chassis; six of these chassis find their position in a compartment making function of cartridge; six others are distributed in the pockets or are enclosed in a case.
The body of the camera is established under two distinct forms Jumelle and Detective, both provided with the double off-centring and the automatic focusing by ring with helical slot. In the two types, the viewfinder, with plumb line and eyepiece, is interdependent of movements of the small plank of lens, which ensures an definite location in the event of off-centring, and a impeccable setting of plates.

Price. - Pankoras are provided with twelve simple chassis and a fabric bag to the following conditions:

Jumelle 9 x 12, obj. anast. Goerz 370 francs
