The Piccolo is a jumelle style camera for small roll film, made by Murer & Duroni of Milan around the trun of the 20th century. More than one type exists. McKeown shows a camera for 4×5 cm pictures on roll film made for Kodak box cameras of the same time, and notes that Kodak themselves made a very similar camera.[1] This has an 'I' and 'B' shutter, selectable aperture stop, and a Newton viewfinder. Another, later example for 3×4 cm photographs on 127 film was sold at Westlicht.[2] This also has selectable aperture stops, in an unpainted metal disc simply attached in front of the lens. The viewfinder is a rather curious Newton finder, with a large glass at the rear, and a small wire frame at the front.
