Cornu Ontoscope 45 X 107

Traduction de Manuel M

Ontoscope 45x107 without identification. Obviously inspired of the Verascope of Richard with like main differences:

- Parallepipedic room and either in truncated pyramid.
- The rabbet of the magazine allows here the use of simple frames without intermediary.
- The exposure counter is square and not round. It is manual here.

Certain parts, the button speeds, the viewfinder and its eyepiece are identical to those of the Verascope.
Focusing, lenses without brand, P and I with variable speeds, two diaphragms and total closure, shutter release which can receive a cable release bell screwing type, closing of the magazine by a flexible steel blade, possibility of charging and of discharging the twelve plates in only once.
The exposure counter is automatic, the lever to unlock the magazine must be left up, which is not very practical.
A camera which has all the benefits of the Verascope, without having certain disadvantages of them.
