This rare little box camera is in good condition overall. Cosmetics are very good, apart from a worn patch on the camera's right side caused by a rivet in the included case. Lens is in acceptable condition. Shutter blades are sticky and don't close reliably, so although the shutter "fires" you can't depend on it to cut off light at the end of the exposure.

According to Bernard Vial, the master of French camera history, only 2,000 of these were made. How many have survived until now?

Includes: original case, instruction sheet (in poor condition) 


About Camera Sanctuary:

Like you, I love cameras. I bring all manner of equipment into the Camera Sanctuary in the hope that I can place it in a new home. I handle everything from collector’s pieces to total beaters, Leica to Lomo, Alpa to Argus. You can buy from me secure in the following:

- My descriptions are honest. Some cameras have been babied, and some have been brutalized. There’s room in the world for both, but I won't try to sell one as the other.

- I won’t pretend I don’t know things. 

- I’ll take back anything that doesn’t meet your expectations.
