Format: 120 6x6cm Pseudo-TLR Box Camera
Made: 1957 –
Lens: Haking’s Double Meniscus f/8

This may look like a TLR but it’s actually a fixed-focus box camera, with a very simple shutter (1/30s) and just three apertures to choose from – f/8, f/11 and f/16.

I have never seen a red-brown version before – black is very common and pale grey is also available, so when I spotted this on eBay a few weeks ago, I couldn’t resist. See the photos made with the Prefect.
