The Duex dates from around 1940, and is an extremely basic eye level box camera. The lens is on a helical screw mount, to allow the camera to be a bit less bulky when not in use. There is no focussing and only one shutter speed plus "B".
The camera takes 620 rollfilm, which is now obsolete, so I re-spooled some expired Fuji Provia 100F slide film onto an old 620 spool.

Oh dear... this is now the sixth year of the project.
This is one of the original 1960s Dianas, of which there are many clones and different names. It takes 120 film, but squeezes 16 square frames on by using a 4x4cm negative area.
I found this one in a local charity shop, with box and instructions for £2 and I've loaded it with expired Fuji Velvia ISO 100 slide film.
