Chronology of cameras Coronet 

Traduction de Daniel Clément.

This camera is one Lux to which was added an internal yellow filter. As for the Lux, the lens is one 14/104 mm.
It is dual-format (6 X 9 or 4,5 X 6), it means two film numbers windows are made available at the rear of the camera , since films had integrated this possibility by having on their back paper a double numbering system of the views, shifted according to the format (the numbers were brought closer for 4,5 X 6). That made it possible to carry out 16 photographs in 4,5 X 6 and only 8 in 6 X 9. This system is sometimes eccentric on these Coronet, because certain announced cameras as “dual” have only one picture number windows at the rear. In addition, the format is sometimes 4 X 6 cm, whereas it is 4,5 X 6 on other cameras (what seems righter since 4,5 is half of 9. Elementary my dear !)

This all metal box is rather heavy.
