Fink-Roselieve, or after 1945 simply FR, was a US manufacturer of photo products, mostly known for developing tanks and photo-chemistry products. A small spotlight, an accessory rangefinder, and other items were also sold. Around 1942, they briefly offered a press camera in 2¼×3¼" size, the FR Reporter. Apparently some Reporters were actually manufactured; but it is a rarely-seen model (not even rating an entry in McKeown's). By 1943, advertisements for Fink-Roselieve instead announced the company's manufacture of chemistry for WWII aerial reconnaissance.
FR became the US importer of Adox films. Around 1961 FR offered the Auto-Eye II 35mm camera, a rebranding of a model manufactured by Adox.
