Chronology of cameras Girard 

Traduction De Daniel C:


This model is very similar to this one. Nevertheless, it differs by the presence of two connection for pneumatic shutter triggering and by the availability of a spirit level. It is possibly the same camera if the item shown on this page is complete and the other not.

  • Shutter : Bausch & Lomb Opt. Co (marked Automat) : 1 / 2 / 5 / 25 / 50 / 100 / B / T,
