Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

Monitor is recognized easily with its finder, the presence of a clip for accessory and with the general shape of its cap. The finder has a manual correction of parallax.
Monitor existed in 1941, with two combinations of shutter and lens:

  • anastigmat 4,5 with Kodamatic shutter.
  • anastigmat Special 4,5 and obturating Supermatic.

In format 620, the first was worth 30 dollars, and in format 616, 35 dollars.
The second, in 620, was worth 42,50 dollars and into 616, 48,50 dollars.
