Samoca 35 III

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

Samoca 35 III is a small 35 mm, rather strange by the provision of its adjustments. The serrated roller of speed (1/25, 1/50, 1/100 and B) is partly overlapping under the ring of distance. The button of left is the release.
The visible button on the right makes it possible to arm the shutter. Release will not be possible that if this button were beforehand in a hurry. Like, one can arm the shutter without having advanced film, it is easy to make overprintings. Behind this button of armament of the shutter, is a small completely inaccessible pull knob . When the button of advance is turned, the film makes turn a capstan, which itself made leave the pull knob, by a system of small internal rods. When one presses on the button (right) of armament of the shutter, that pushes back the pull knob, which makes turn the counter. It is only with the following wind that the pull knob will arise. In the event of armament of the shutter without winding, there is thus no move of the counter.

Thanks with Michel Taillandier for his research on the operation of the small pull knob.
