This is a very cheap reflex built around a conventional box camera design. It had an f8 lens with an automatically applied stop of f11 which is introduced just prior to exposure. Two finishes were available a brown cloth covering or black leather.

A more expensive model with an anastigmatic lens was produced at the same time. That model had the same name but was of different construction and is the one more often found today.
