The Beaumat is a 35mm rangefinder camera made by Beauty Camera in 1960. The device attached to the lens barrel is the centre-needle display for the selenium meter cell around the lens itself. The thin black ring around the front of the lens barrel is the film speed setting, followed by the shutter speed ring (speeds to 1/500), then the aperture ring, and finally the focus ring - scaled in feet (in orange) and metres (in white) at the back. The focus ring is operated by a lever protruding below the lens barrel.
