    Does anyone know about this Coronet camera?

    Hi,

    some month ago I got this camera. I have not found much info in the internet about it.

    Can anyone tell me which camera it is exactly and the shutter speed and aperture of the lens (only has 2 speeds, Instant and Bulb..). I have found some similar ones and seem to be about f10, shutter speed could be of about 1/60s...

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    I have one exactly like it in my hand now.

    But I don't know much about it, save that it takes 120 film, makes 6cm x 9cm images, and was made in England by the Coronet Camera Co., Birmingham. It's typical of the low end of the market 6x9 folding point and shoot cameras of the 1920s and early 1930s.

    Crude measurements with a ruler show that the aperture is about f/22 (the hole in front of the lens is about 5mm diameter, and the distance to the film plane about 110mm: 110/5 = 22). These shutters are usually closer to 1/25 than 1/60, although it does depend to some extent how quickly you flip the lever.

    I haven't used mine, I bought it by accident.

    Oh,

    thank you so much for the answer!

    I used it once and did work. Just wanted to know what I was shooting and not just guessing
