Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

Beside the production of box 3 X 4 and 6 X 9, that everyone knows, George Paris produced in smaller quantity of the cameras 6 X 9 whose general form points out that of Ultra-Fex. But with the difference of those, it is not the plastic which is used but the sheet. On the front face, one finds the beloved geometrical reasons with GAP. The shutter release is on the left side of the front face. Just above him, is a selector between Time Exposure (Pose) and Snapshot (Inst.) and on the right is a selector of aperture (two).
Choices “Exposure/Inst.” and “Normal/Sun” is registered on the octagonal front face, but curiously also on the rectangular part which forms before extractable tube and which is used as support with the octagonal part (you are able to follow me?). It thus pressed there, in metal, “P-I” behind the selector “Time exposure/instantaneous” and “0-4” on the side of “Soleil” and “0-6” on the side of “Normal”. I do not understand to what these figures correspond.
There is a synchro flash in top and on the right of the front face.

It is impossible to start when the tube completely inside, because a pin interdependent of the body of the camera blocks the shutter release then. Remain that if you do not draw the tube completely, you have the same problem that on Ultra-Fex, the photograph is fuzzy.
