This is a work in progress.

From its earliest years, the Japanese firm Cosina manufactured cameras on an OEM basis for rebranding by other camera companies or retail distributors.[1] This page attempts to link to camera-wiki.org articles for camera models known or believed to have been manufactured by Cosina. Any documentary evidence for additions to this list would be appreciated and please use the discussion page to provide links.

Notes

  1. "OEM" is the the term used in Cosina's own company history pages. OEM may have varying meanings in different industries (e.g. for computers or car manufacturing); and when considering Cosina's strong in-house camera engineering, the term "ODM" might be more accurate.
