Cyclocamera


Cyclocamera ..... Horizontal Box Camera / circa 1935
35 mm film (perforated / special darkroom loading cassette)
Meniscus lens .... reflex viewer with lens & ground glass .... shutter: 1/50 & B
diaphrams on rotating disc: f.6.3 & f 7.6 .... film advance with claw mechanism
concieved by S. Charov and produced by the Artel Novaya Shkola (New School Workshop), Leningrad, USSR
measures 4" x 2.75" x 1.75" (10cm x 7cm x 4.5 cm)

Notes: The diamond-shaped logo of the artel is impressed into the back of the leatherette covering. This workshop was also a photography school and these cameras were made for students, children and beginning adult photographers. When you pull the lever on the side near the viewfinder, a capping mechanism opens to allow exposure when the shutter is tripped. When the lever is pushed back in, the film advances. The two small levers on the top are the shutter release and aperture adjuster. The small lever on the side is the shutter setting .
