Talk:Sisley 1 and Balm Six
|This is the discussion page for Sisley 1 and Balm Six. Click here to start a new topic.
We now read: "There was a name variant called Balm Six Model I (or Model-1?), same as the Sisley Model-1, but with a lens named Balm Anastigmat."
Where does this info come from? Unless I've misread something, the new link mentions バルマ (baruma) in one place and パルマ (paruma) in another; presumably one of these is a typo but neither looks much like "Balm" (which might be バルム barumu, though of course it could be something else). The page doesn't seem to mention the lens.
NB I don't say that the new addition is misinformation; I'm just wondering about it.
Whatever this camera is called, my uninformed guess is that it (or much of it) was manufactured by Takane for some other company: cf the Mihama Six or (yet to be written up) Aires Viceroy. Uninformed guesses can often be wrong, of course. -- Hoary 22:49, 14 May 2006 (EDT)
- If you enlarge the picture displayed in the page, you can clearly see the first letter "B", and "Balm" is plausible. McKeown's book lists the "Balm Six Model-1" under Takane (with a Balm Anastigmat 75/3.5 lens and a NKS B-1-200 shutter), and it shows a picture where you can read "Balm Six" on the top plate. I am certain about the name, and the バルア and パルマ transcriptions in the AJCC page are mistakes.
- Other info confirmed by McKeown's pictures: the Sisley 2A has a Deep-C Anastigmat 75/3.5 and a Copal B-1-300, the Sisley 3A has a Deep-C Anastigmat 75/3.5 and a Copal MX B-1-300. --Rebollo fr 05:49, 15 May 2006 (EDT)
