The Konter Six (コンターシックス) is a Japanese 6×6 camera, about which almost nothing is known. It is only mentioned in the official list of set prices compiled in October 1940 and published in January 1941, for ¥60, with no further detail.[1] This price was the lowest for 6×6 cameras, and the Konter Six was probably an entry-level 6×6 folder. Its name might indicate that it was made by Mori, to which are attributed the Semi Konter and Rollekonter.
