Goerz Roll Tenax

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

A giant! Format 122 is completely forgotten, but it had its hour of glory. A this moment, we called it the “Postcard” format. The negatives obtained measure 8 X 14 cm. Of what to make dream the amateurs of medium-format. There exists nevertheless in the Tenax series with film (bus before, there had been a Tenax series with plate), smaller formats, more current.
This model has a Tenastigmat 6,8/168 mm lens. Its shutter allows speeds of the second the 1/100, plus the exposures at one and two times. It has vertical off-centering. A small side crutch makes it possible to pose the camera for the horizontal format. The Goerz logo appears on the carriage and behind of the camera. As for the name Tenax, it is registered on the crutch and the finder. This finder is tilting and has a level with water.
