I reeeealy want one, can’t find one. Bwwaaaaaa
Not heard or seen if one of those before, it's a nice looking thing
Week-end Bob - Camera-wiki.org - The free camera encyclopedia
In France, I have been seeking during years for this Week end Bob and could not find one to buy.
This very rare camera was based on the body of the Reyna series and was sold by Grenier and not directly by Cornu. You may see some different variations of the Week end Bob and associated technical specifications in this great website directed by Sylvain Halgand.
A good description of this gem can be seen in the French Book "Histoire des appareils Français - Période 1940-1960" >By Bernard Vial - Maeght Editeur
That’s a cool looking camera. Haven’t seen one before.
Cool camera but Much Cooler Name! I’ll admit that’s what attracted me to it. I’ll hunt one down, eventually, you know as a collector, the thrill is in the hunt! It’s like looking for an albino squirrel.
I you continue to fail finding a Week End Boy you may console yourself buying one of its succesors.
This is what i did with these two cameras from my collection:
A Baby Sem manufactured by SEM on the basis of the body designed by Cornu
Or a SEM Kim on the same basis
These cameras are not as sophisticated as the Week End Boy but for lack of thrust, we eat blackbirds (French proverb)
