Jump to: navigation, search

The Cord 47 box camera was made in France around 1947. It is a dual format camera taking images 6×9cm or 4.5×6cm on 120 film. One has to select the film format before loading the film; small flaps can be swivelled into position in front of the film when using the smaller format. There are two shutter settings, instantaneous (I) and time exposures (P) operated with a control on the side. There is a choice of three apertures: f12, f16 and f22. The viewfinders have lines indicating the two formats.
