- Depth of field table on the front of lens block,
- Cocking on the lens block and trigger on the body,
- Self timer,
- Viewfinders: Galileo + reversible optical
- Cover on the frame counter red window


Editor's note: The Lumirex III will be available with an Angénieux 1:3.5 from February 1953.


By analyzing Photo-Plait catalogs, we can deduce this approximative classification. It doesn't take into account the decoration of cameras shown in illustration, because the illustrations are not reliable enough. 
Please note, it may be a difference of one year between the year of launch of a given camera and its publication on the annual catalogs.
