The Swiftshot is an Australian box camera from the 1950s made by Foster Instruments Pty. Ltd. It came in a range of colours, and takes 620 film (some examples can also use 120 film), taking 8 exposures per roll of film. It is one of the very few Australian cameras, and is fairly rare.
It has two apertures, a built-in sliding filter (for use with black-and-white film, per the instruction notelet it improves the contrast between white clouds and blue skies, and can also be used to reduce glare while photographing sea or snow), and has a choice of both "instant" exposures and "time" (really bulb, allowing long exposures to be made). It is fixed-focus (10 feet to infinity).
