Asahi Bussan Olympic A

In 1934 Asahi Bussan offers the Olympic A, a plain copy of the Rubette german camera from Ruberg & Renner.
If the optical/shutter is a little different from its original, it has the same settings: two values ​​of openness and two shutter speeds
Historically it is one of the first Japanese bakelite camera and also one of the first Japanese camera offered for export.
In a second version the camera has evolved, distinguishing itself from its german original by acquiring an optical viewfinder.
