Zion Simili-Jumelle

Traduction de Manuel M

A design worthy of the first digital cameras or some certain disposable ones, and yet this camera have nearly 120 years.
All that is due to the long viewfinder of Galileo, hooded and located laterally. The rest is in conformity with the jumelle camera type in vogue at this time.

This simili-jumelle Zion is “with automatic focusing”, i.e. that at the time of the focusing a needle moves on a dial above the viewfinder

This primitive model, equipped here with a standard magazine Haneau-Richard type, is normally provided with a change of the plates by leather pocket.

The lens “Anastigmatique J. Zion Opticien Fabricant Paris” bears the N ° 1047, which is found in fronting on the plate.
The guillotine shutter has four speeds with air brake. The cocking is done by pull knob. It has two nuts of foot/stalk with the thread of the Congress.
