See also Tanaka Kōgaku, maker of the Tanack rangefinder cameras, and Tanaka Shōkai, a distributor in the 1950s.

A company called Tanaka (田中) is mentioned in the April 1943 government inquiry on Japanese cameras as the maker of the Mulix 6×6 folder and its Mulixar 75/4.5 and 75/3.5 four-element lenses.[1]

Tanaka is a very common family name in Japan, and this company was surely not related to the postwar Tanaka Kōgaku, maker of the Tanack cameras.
