The C60 was the first in a series of simple 35 mm viewfinder cameras made by Closter in Rome. The C60 was followed by the similar C61, C62 and C63; McKeown dates the C60 to about 1960, and it is possible the later cameras refer to the years they were made.
The C60 has front-element focusing scaled in feet and metres, down to 1.5 metres. It has a simple 'B' and 'I' shutter, but this is synchronised for flash (and the camera has a cold shoe). The front plate and lens and shutter unit are very similar to those on the 1959 Olympic camera for 127 film.
