    Box camera ID help needed

    Can anyone assist with manufacturer and vintage information on the box camera shown below? It is 6 x 9 format, made in France and appears to take 120 film. The winder key is too large for 620 spools.
    Thanks
    Greg

    From the site: Coronet "...linked up with Tiranty of Paris after WMII to produce cameras and avoid French import restrictions. These cameras usually have 'Made in France' and French instructions on controls and include the Rapide, Le Polo, Weekend and Fildia."

    Thanks Matt. Here's a pic from it taken last weekend. A bit of fun but it is back to the RZ for me.

    Nice pic! Why back to the RZ? I bet the Mamiya doesn't vignette quite like that.
