Week 254 - Corfield Periflex
Corfield made a number of variations of the Periflex camera, this is one of the later ones. Their unique feature is a periscope, which is lowered down in front of the focal plane shutter, and reflects a small portion of the view into an eyepiece, where it can be focused, before using the other eyepiece as a viewfinder.
The slower speeds no longer work on this onse, and I suspect the shutter curtains may not run at a steady rate, we shall see.
