(NØ) would have loved to be underwater archeologist… But since her daily job does not require her to wear a wetsuit, she fancy going for some treasure hunting while exploring her closet, looking for some buried treasure, not in the sand but behind pile of lavender linen … And here is what (NØ) has recently resurfaced… Come on board and join us in our fantastic time travel journey.
Here is a Movex – Movestar camera, 8mm, produced in 1958 by Agfa, pretty and nicely protected in her original leather case !
Continuing in our vintage journey, here is a Semflex, a little photographic camera, rather light, produced in France between 1949 and 1959 and made by “la Société des Établissements Modernes de Mécanique (la SEM)”. The model below is a TLR, Twin Lens Reflex, that work together to allow photographers to take photos with one lens and use the other lens as a viewfinder.
The flip-up hood contains the viewfinder. The focusing screen included can be a bit disturbing at first since it flips the image horizontally.
This camera used photographic films of 120 or 220 that includes 12 images in 6×6.
Now time to close the case and travel to our next destination (don’t forget your travel journal)!
A simplified version of this modele carries the sweet name of “joie de vivre”…
