But, then wasn't the "Automat" feature assumed after the time of the MX
Automat circa 1951? Surely it must have been a significant innovation at
BTW, is that a patented feature? Mamiya, and Yashica TLRs, as well as MF
SLRs still have you roll to the "start" mark/arrow, then the crank clicks
off x number of rotations until the film has been pulled the correct
distance. I would guess the only similar innovation since is the
semi-autoloads that some of the Fuji 645s have.
