What is this camera? Is it a Beautycord?

Old Camera..?

When I was up my my friends’ house, Ian brought out this old camera of his Dad’s, and asked me what it was, as everyone seems to think I’m some sort of camera nut..

Embarassingly, I had no idea. So all cocky like, I thought that I’d find out in no time with Google. No such luck. After scouring the web for about the same time as it takes to develop and print about 50 films, I gave up, humiliated in my defeat. My reputation of being a photography geek is in danger of being revoked.

It makes it tricky with the name plate missing, but the closest thing I can liken it to is a Beautycord tlr. The badge on the top is similar (I should have taken a picture of it really), but some of the knobs and dials aren’t quite similar.

So, what is it? What the heck is it? It’s crazy, I don’t need to know, it’s not essential to me leading a happy life, but it’s a puzzle that is driving me crazy. I’ve even got my mate Sonia going nuts.

It’s got to be a Beautycord because it has the same symbol on top as my Beautycord. :-)
