Chronology of cameras Mazo 

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

To understand the principle of operation of the Detectives, please refer to the page of Murer Newness Express.
The company E. Mazo had its offices 8, Magenta Boulevard in Paris at the beginning of the XXème century, as well as a plate screwed above the camera indicates it.
This Cimbre made it possible to take photographs with the format 12 X 9 cm. The distance is regulated with the cursor in the shape of beam which is visible under the lens. The crown around the lens swivels and regulates thus the aperture. The part on the left of the lens makes it possible to choose between time exposure and snapshot. The shutter release is on the left side of the camera. It is very small compared to the camera. A hook protects from involuntary releases. The visible serrated roller in bottom and in front of the camera seems to be manual counter.
