Coronet Fixed focus all distance (Foyer Fixe Toutes Distances) is a folding 120 film camera manufactured under license of Coronet Co., Birmingham, England by Tiranty Company, Paris, France and produced in late 1940s and early 1950s. [1]

Coronet was a British camera maker based in Birmingham. It manufactured a variety of cheap box and folding cameras until 1967. After the WW2 it worked together with the French company Tiranty to avoid French import restrictions. Several Coronet camera models were made in France, some with Boyer lenses, and some with instruction imprints in French.
