The Press Van-120 strut-folding camera was manufactured by Suzuki Kōgaku Kōgyō K.K. (鈴木光学工業㈱) in 1954. Stamped in the back covering is "Press Van SUZUKI OPT. CO. LTD."

It takes both 6×6 and 4.5×6cm exposures on 120 rollfilm. Masks fold in at the film plane for the smaller format and the pressure plate rotates to uncover the correct red window for film winding. It has a f/3.5 75mm Takumar lens in a Seikosha-Rapid shutter and a coupled rangefinder. Focussing is by the right knob on the top plate. A small foot unfolds from the front panel to stand the camera on a level surface.

A previous model, the Press Van took both 120 film and 35mm film.
