Closter Olympic

Traduction de Manuel M

In 1959, Italy, and particularly Rome, are activated to prepare the Olympic seventeenths Games of summer. As for each Olympiad, a large number of products take “Olympic” names. Closter does not escape the practice and names this simple camera of the name of Olympic.

I have some doubts about the authenticity of a German manufacture. The lens bears a German name: “Optisches Werk Lambron”. The general form, and some details, make me think of certain Bilora.
Very simple, in addition to the focusing, it has for any adjustment only the choice between three apertures, defined by pictograms: a rainy cloud (under which he is written “color”), a sun under a cloud, then a sun alone.
It has a synchro-flash all the same, which is preferable with a so weak aperture.
