The Swiss-Box is a metal-bodied viewfinder camera for sixteen 3×4 cm pictures on 127 film. It was made by the Suter company in Basel, Switzerland, in about 1941.[1] It has a focusing lens, scaled to 0.5 metres. It has a simple shutter, with the release lever on the right side of the body; McKeown states that this has to be moved through 90° to throw the shutter.[2] There is a knurled film advance knob, and a reverse-Galilean viewfinder. The camera is painted in crackle-finish, and was made in several colours.
