Cornu Week-End

Traduction de Manuel M

The Weekend left at the same time as the Fama and take again some of its characteristics, like the interchangeable lens with the threading and extension of the Leica. This camera aimed at the public of the young people. But probably already at that time “There is no more youth” and it is a rare camera.
It bears N° stamped inside (< to 400…)
All publicities shows a camera with the frame of the viewfinder fixed by two rivets. I never met this variant.
The lens is on a small gear sliding tube. Once got out, it gives neatness from 1 to 2 meters.
Fixed diaphragm, adjustment speeds according to the weather and indications appearing on the ring and on the back of the camera.

Weekend (N° 64) fronting does not mention yet the name of the camera.
