The Pisco is a leaf shutter found on a few Japanese cameras of the late 1930s or early 1940s. The name PISCO is inscribed at the bottom of the black front plate. The range of speeds is 250, 100, 50, 25, 10, 5, 2, 1, B, T, directly inscribed at the top of the front plate.

The Pisco shutter is very similar to the shutter marked K.PRONTOR.S. found on a Mulix, which is certainly the KP III shutter mentioned in an original document as made by Kinshō (see the discussions in the pages on Kinshō and the Mulix). This might indicate that the Pisco was made by Kinshō too.
