EXPRESS NOVAC

Dernière mise à jour : 13 janv. 2021

Unknown cute klapp camera...




After searching the web, no traces of this cameras... but on a facebook group somebody tells me it should be a ZION camera.


ZION POCKET Z

Right ! this is a variant of that ZION camera

ZION POCKET camera is exactly the same at this EXPRESS NOVAC. Made in France c.1923, it is an uncommon camera usually found with BOYER lens.




What about the EXPRESS NOVAC ?


This very rare variant (not found anywhere on the www ...) has a NOVAC lens, so Novac camera with Novac lens and made by ZION...



PHOTO PLAIT ?

The same camera can be found on a PHOTOPLAIT catalog c.1925 under the name POCKET PLATOS with Roussel Trylor Stylor or Berthiot Olor lenses.

PHOTO PLAIT was a reseller with main shop in Paris and a big part of activities were made by catalog sales all around France.


About NOVAC


The only reference to Novac cameras can be found in a 1921 PHOTOPLAIT catalog but these are 6,5x9 and 9x12 folding cameras, but none proposed with Novac lens.

So, mystery is still there, who was behind this NOVAC/ZION camera ???
