The Bencini Relex camera used 127 film and was made in Italy by Bencini ca 1949. The camera has a simple point-and-shoot design with almost no settings that can be adjusted by the user. Shutter speed is either 1/50 or Bulb. The 75mm lens has a fixed, f/11 aperture. The lens assembly consists of a rigid metal tube that must be extended and locked before use. For storage, the lens tube collapses back into the camera. The Bencini Relex produces 5.8 x 4.2 cm images[1] on 127 film. The camera body is made from die-cast aluminium, much like its predecessor, the Bencini Comet. The primary difference between the two cameras is that the Comet records portrait aspect ratio images on 127 film while the Relex creates more conventional landscape aspect ratio images.
