(1949) This is a tiny twin lens reflex with a pop-up viewfinder. Well,
it's tiny for a twin lens reflex, but it big for a 17.5mm camera -- some
would say enormous! It was made by Showa Optical Works Ltd. It
has a fixed-focus GEM 25mm f3.5 lens with f-stop to f11. It sports
a SWALLOW shutter with speeds of B, 1/25, 1/50, and 1/100. At least two different
versions were made. One has a sports finder instead of the standard
TLR finder. Accessories included a lens shade and a yellow filter.
This beast even has a tripod socket!
