Chronology of cameras Lumiere 

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

It is difficult to be found there in the nomenclature and the chronology of Scoutbox. It seems that Lumière gave the same name to different cameras and also gave different names to quasi-similar cameras.

The most credible justification is that Lumière wanted to have in his catalog three ranges of box: bottom-of-the-range,Lumière-box, medium of range, Scout-box and top-of-the-range,Lumibox.
To try to see there more clearly, I distinguish two types of Scoutbox: those with two finders and those with only one tilting finder.

Type with two finders: The camera metal is sheathed of fabric with drawings losangic.The front face regains this shape of rhombus around the lens. There are three possible apertures. The selection between Snapshot and exposure is done by a pull knob located on the left side (by looking at the camera by front). The tripod socket is located under the former part of the body.
