Olbia Bx

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

Olbia BX wonders whether it is a box or another type of camera… us too. One finds some rather similar camera at Coronet, with, for example, the Cadet.
They are presented in the form of a cubic darkroom, whose bottom is very widened to accommodate two 620 reels. The unit is out of bakelite. It can be black or maroon.
There is no adjustment of distance. It there has a speed (instantaneous) and poses it and two openings.
An camera of harmony if one refers about it to the strange small yin and yang which decorates the front face.

There is a simplified version of this camera. It is called Clartex.
