The Spécial "937" is a French folding camera for 6x9 images on 120 film, built from the body shell of a Dehel camera by Demaria-Lapierre. Date is uncertain, but it is shown on an ad dated 1937, and the name "937" might come from year 1937[1].

Controls are basic; shutter release, B/I (pose/inst) shutter control, two aperture settings - mini/maxi. Some examples seem to be fitted for a carry-strap at the top; the example shown and that in the ad are not.


  1. Sylvain Halgand shows this ad and lists the film size as 620; the example pictured here has too large a drive shaft for 620 spools.
