This Jsolette (also, Isolette) was an entry-level 120 rollfilm folding camera made for a couple of years in the early 1950’s. It has three shutter speeds and an adequate f/4.5 lens, unusual in this format for being an 85mm (75mm is more common for 120). I was given the camera with some out of date rolls of 120 film by a friend from a local camera club. It seems straightforward enough to use, but I have yet to process the film to see the actual results.
