Week 351 - Taron Eyemax
The Taron Camera Co. Ltd. emerged in post-war Japan out of a company that made shutters for other manufacturers, such as Mamiya and Fujica. In the mid 1950s they launched their own range of cameras, producing a number of distinctive designs, before closing in the late 1960s. The Eyemax is a well specified enthusiast's camera, boasting a coupled range-finder and a built in, coupled Selenium exposure meter. The lens on mine is an f1.8 45mm Taronar, though some were sold with an f2.8 version.
