The 2,5×2,5 opera glasses have individually focusing oculars and are mediocre in quality.
The special cassettes used 16 mm perforated film. The bridge of the cassette allows it to be removed from the camera in one piece. The pressure plate has a spring clip that clicks when the perforation pass under it.
The top is engraved “Listen for two clicks for each exposure”at which point the film has wound on to the next frame.
The Binoca was made in White ,Blue ,Green ,Grey and Red.
The metal parts are a rich dark gold tone.
At least two variations exists.
One has the fitment for a neck cord .
The other does not have that.
This camera has the fitment for the neck cord . And in this very nice red colour i have not seen one picture on the internet , let alone on fair,s or camera show’s .So i think this red color is pretty unique.
