Lumiere Nada

This camera has been the first "automatic" model made by LUMIERE in 1930, recognizable by its chrome front and red letters J (Jougla) and L (Lumière) riveted to the inside of the bed (although some Nada do not possess these references). In these letters are engraved "NA" on J and "DA" on the L, Nada takes perhaps its name from Nadar, a photographer friend of Lumière father. (Registration is still strange by its meaning: "Nothing" in slang). Its back with the inscription Nada Lumière inscribed in a triangle, is totally removable.
