Week 228 - Silura Nemrod underwater camera
This Bakelite monster was made in Spain, it takes 120 film and is basically a simple box camera in an underwater housing. Inside the cylindrical body there are lead weights and a battery and capacitor to power the flashgun, which takes standard glass flashbulbs.
There is a single fixed shutter speed, no focusing and no choice of aperture. I've loaded it with Ilford Delta 400 B&W film, but I don't intend to take it underwater.
