Related to cameras?

Does this company make products for cameras or for other applications only? To me, it looks like a manufacturer of components rather than a lens maker. These components might be used by some camera or lens makers, but this is unclear. --Rebollo fr 18:18, 13 May 2008 (EDT)

The film shows the making of a JML tv camera lens, at ebay I've found one JML 28mm screwmount still camera lens and one JML 56mm view camera lens in flash synchronized Copal shutter, and in a blog somebody talked about a M42 24mm camera lens of JML. These may have been products of the past, but one actual product presented on the actual homepage is dedicated just to still cameras: a focusing ground glass fresnel lens for view cameras. JML is related to still cameras, and surely to enlargers too.

You're right, and I apologize. I made a quick search and saw pictures of a 28mm f/2.8 screwmount lens (surely M42). I also found enlarging lenses, and some lenses used by large-format photographers (though it is unclear if they were originally made for LF cameras). Interesting to learn about a little-known lens maker. --Rebollo fr 17:15, 14 May 2008 (EDT)
