Lumiere Krita

The three Lumière folding plate cameras on the page 27 of the Omnium-Photo catalog dated 1932 ( Krita , Takha and Ultra) , should all come from the Hemax plants (Héard et Mallinjod: this brand was purchased by Lumière in the early 30s , Mr Mallinjod became foreman at Joinville . The Krita is also available on the Lumière catalog dated 1932.
You can read some answers elements upon the matter on the forum.
The Krita camera does not seem to provide much innovation compared to conventional production in the early 30s. But it is top of the range with its potential for horizontal and vertical shift and its bellows double extension. It is also available in the format 6.5 x 9 .
Lumière could do no less than installing one of its lens, a 6.3 Nacor or Spector 4.5 . The other input is the plastic stand lock that differentiates the Lumière foldings from Hemax ones.
The construction is completely metallic, and the focusing stand support is hinged , which facilitates the use .
