The viewfinder camera made by Alsaphot has a focusable pull-out lens. It shoots 6×6cm exposures on type 120 film rolls. Its name is Ajax or D'Assas. Advanced versions have a shutter release button on their restyled camera top. Many versions have original Gitzo shutters instead of Alsaphot shutters. The Alsaphot Cady is a relative which is equipped with slower lens and simpler shutter. The design of Ajax, D'Assas and Cady had been derived from SIAP's 6×6 camera SIAP 6x6.
