Bencini Rolet

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.


Does the confusion which settles when one pronounces in French the name of this camera exist in Italian? Could a bilingual person light us on this subject, so that one raises the unknown factor on the will of the Italian manufacturer to maintain the ambiguity?
Moreover, which ambiguity, since Rolet resembles Rollei as much as a 2CV in the Rolls Camargue? The camera is rather in conformity so that made Bencini at the time, in Milan, in term of use of moulded aluminum (but brushed in this case).

What dissociates in first Rolet of Comet and Koroll, it is the size. Rolet is really far from thick, even if its lens must be drawn to ensure a normal operation.
