Cornu Reyna I

Traduction de Manuel M

Launched in 1942, under unfavorable auspices, this manufacture, starting from a body moulded out of aluminum, can surprise on the part of a manufacturer who provided Ontoscope and Ontoflex. Most astonishing is undoubtedly the very varied descent of this modest camera undoubtedly born of the difficulties encountered in the years of occupation.
Reyna have a optical unit on a retractable tube, but with shutter release on the body, which requires a more or less complex system of transmission. I always thought that the known mechanism was not the first considered insofar as the ring of the shutter is crooked, which remains an only case in all the French production…
Closing is done by a needle. The button of shutter release is offset.
Security against double exposure. The button in fronting must be pushed to advance the film.

Reyna first model (N° 457) Reyna engraved in fronting, Lens Flor 3.5 of 50 mm. Shutter marked Gitzo Reyna Paris.
