Au Bon Marche Chambre

Traduction de Manuel M

This plate folding camera of format 9 X 12, distributed by the department store “Au Bon Marché” look like enormously to “Krügener Teddy 520A”, of 1909.

The Bon Marché is only one distributer and not a manufacturer. It sold under its own brand some cameras of manufacturers without change of characteristics.
This small plate camera with simple extension is provided with a lens of rectilinear formula having a modest aperture of  f: 12, rather intended for the beginners. However, this kind of target was located in medium range.
The range of speeds allows the 1/25, 1/50, 1/100 of second. plus the installations B and T marked here Z and O
what confirms the German origin of the camera.

The brand of the pneumatic shutter does not appear.

The tfocusing is done starting from 1.5 meters

The body is out of wood covered with very fine leather. The nickelled parts gives a beautiful aspect to this plate camera
