The Comet III is a curious looking camera, with an unusual upright disposition. It takes 3x4cm negatives on 127 rollfilm. Constructed from aluminium, it’s a fairly simple box camera in reality, using a fixed shutter speed of 1/50s (and B) with an aperture of f/11. I will be interested to see how it handles!
