In 1921, in addition to a number of imported cameras, it was offering the Lily No.2 by Rokuoh-sha and a kabine-size field camera. This field camera has double extension bellows and various movements, and was supplied with a Thornton-type shutter, a tripod and a cloth sack. The choice of lenses was as follows:
- Goerz Dagor No.2 f/6.8, ¥185;
- Dallmeyer Ser.II No.4 f/6, ¥175;
- Trinar No.2 f/6, ¥118;
- Novar Double Anastigmat f/6, ¥105.
At some time, the company reportedly distributed the Venis plate folder. It was still active in 1932, trading new and used cameras.
