Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

The first access, model 37 resembles the 36. Even body, even matter for the body, even plastic for the cap positioned on the left. The lens/shutter block is not the same one, although it shows the same design features. On the cap of the 37, there is a clip. A transfer, inside the camera specifies “the shutter of this camera synchronizes the electronic flashes whatever the shutter speed chosen, and the magnesic lamps at the slow speeds until the 1/25 of second included”.
This camera is tri-format: 6 X 9 cm, 6 X 6 cm and 28 x40 mm (on film 828). In its box, are two removable masks to insert in the camera to obtain the formats 6 X 6 cm and 28 X 40 mm, like two reducing reels to use film 828. The finder is periscopic, because its two ends are not opposite one the other. A transparent rosy mask makes it possible to viewfind by taking account of the surface of film.

This camera cost, in 1953, 21930 francs (catalogs Caron - Amiens). It is present at the catalog Photo-Plait 1954-1955. Model 33 could be transformed into model 37 per 3055 francs , in 1955, at Photo-Plait.
