Harukawa, Japan Septon Pen Camera, Deluxe Model. Very rare pen camera for 16mm film. The device has the shape of an oversized pen. The tip contains a functional propelling pencil. The other end contains an eye-level viewfinder, and has a pen clip on one side, engraved’SEPTON’. The camera part is in the middle of the device. The exposure size is 14x14mm, and the film is sometimes described as paper-backed 16mm film, perhaps because it was advertised or announced as such. It seems that it is actually the same as the 17.5mm film used in Hit-type cameras. The back door is removable, contains a window to control the position of the film, and is inscribed’PEN CAMERA’ and’PAT. MADE IN JAPAN’ below. The advance knob itself is placed opposite the pen clip. The front part of the camera is metal finished, with a fixed-focus Septon 2.8/20mm lens in the middle. The aperture is adjustable from 2.8 to 11, via a small knob placed above the lens. The shutter is of the guillotine type, and has Bulb and Instant settings, selected by a small knob at the bottom right. It is cocked by a sliding lever on the side, and tripped by a button placed opposite the speed knob. The name’SEPTON’ is engraved on the front face, below the lens. The back is locked by a sliding latch. The dimensions are 141x35x38mm, and the weight is 120g. In very fine original condition, very rare with Septon 2.8/20mm no. 13566 lens cap, JCII control card, original instructions and blue maker’s box. It seems that it is actually the same as the 17.5mm film uséd in Hit-type cameras. Condition: A/B Year: c. Paying via Direct Deposit. No additional information at this time. You might also like.
