Chronology of cameras Alsaphot 

This is the first version of the Dauphin ( means Dolphin in French) I, of which I have already presented an evolution.

Its distance control is rudimentary, as the indications are reduced to "Portrait" and "Paysage" (means Portrait and Landscape in French).
The exposure speed selector has three positions: S, I and P (Stop by blocking the shutter, and Instant and timeExposure.). The diaphragm aperture selector offers threepositions: "soleil", "clair" and "nuages" (sun, bright  and clouds).

 

The Dauphin I (evolution) is not offering  one of these apertures
