Week 51 - Eljy (type 4)

Eljy (type 4), originally uploaded by pho-Tony.
This is a tiny little camera, made by Lumiere in France in the late 1940s. It uses a proprietary film format, taking 8 exposures on a roll of 30mm wide film.
The lens collapses into the body when not in use, and the viewfinder even has parallax correction for closer subjects. Although the shutter speeds range fro 1/10th to 1/200th of a second, they all seem to be the same now.
We'll soon see if there was any life left in the 60 year old film!
