    FS: SoHo Cadet: 6x9 Bakelite Folder

    Here's a "rarity" for you, a 6x9 folder from England, most likely pre-WWII in glorious bakelite, the stuff Bell was founded upon.

    It's a little bit more than a box camera, in that it has two focusing positions, Near and FAR, one shutter speeds (around 1/20s), a T setting, and 4 approximate apertures which I have calculated to be between f/13 and f/22.

    The lens is probably a meniscus, and is usable for contact prints or small enlargements. Film advance is through a red window. It has an adjustable finder, for horizontal or vertical shots. Has a tripod hole for 1/4".

    A nice semi-toy camera, or a tourist camera for taking pictures at the beach.

    I do, but they're not scanned. Let me see if I can dig them up. No crazy swirlies or distorsion effect, though.

    That looks like great fun. Wish I had seen the ad before I sent off that money order to you!

    OK, but with Easter coming I can't guarantee the speediest delivery of the picture! Please be patient, you are a valuable customer...
