The Quick focus incorporates a spring-mounted lens panel, the focusing distance is set on a scale at the side of the camera, by pressing a button the lens panel automatically springs forward to the pre-set position. After the exposure the lens panel is pushed back into the camera body which tensions the spring. The advantage of this arrangement is not obvious.

Coe lists three models: A introduced in 1905 with the distance set on a quadrant at the side of the camera; B introduced in 1906; C introduced in 1906, on this model the distance is set on a dial and circular spool retaining knobs are used.
