Soho Pilot

The Pilot is a very basic folding camera offering only the choice between instant and time exposure.

The main interest of this camera is aesthetic . This comes from the repeated use of small square patterns; each one showing five thin lines (top and bottom of the front face, outside face of the bed, rear face of the body).

Aesthetic also comes from the abundance of octagonal shapes (Squares or rectangles  with cut out corners). The camera body is also octagonal (width as well as depth).
