A 35mm Square format camera has been gifted to me.

It dates from the Sixties and it uses proprietary loading canisters that take 35mm film.
Due to the size of the canister the amount of exposures does not exceed 24, I was told.

It has a PARATOR 42mm f/8 lens and two shutter speeds for sunny conditions and cloudy/flash needed conditions.

I have not yet searched for a cannister or its blueprint yet, so for the time being this is a photo of it.162600_1660764219.jpg

I have a feeling that in my 68 years of collected photographic bits and bobs I have, somewhere, a similar canister, never have known what it fitted, so who knows, you might be lucky?
I will look for my item and if you find out what you require let me know,

I think that this camera system runs the exposed film into an empty cassette with no spool, the cassette contents being retained for processing. Then the empty cassette swapping over.
The maximum exposures, probably 14.

There are ORWO b/w reloaded 12 exp. film canisters for sale on ebay but they are EXTREMELY expensive.
