I found this cubic thing marked Pilot 6 in France in a trade faire dedicated to vintage cameras. It was in very bad condition and it took me some time to refresh it. It is German and was released between 1936 and 1938 by KW (Kamera Werkstätten). Such a short period of production makes it quite difficult to find, even in Europe. But this small box is not ....a box camera. It may be considered as a landmark in the camera history for being one of the early ancestors of the "modern" 6x6 cm SLR. Inside a compact body is a very special mirror/shutter combination system which moves when triggered with a loud noise (which reminds me the happy days when I could torture an Hasselblad in a photo studio) It bears on the side a lead seal hanging on a wire and stamped by the Belgian customs which proves that the device was imported legally It uses 120 films, Is equipped with a waist level finder and a wire frame sport finder on the side Admittedly, The aesthetics of this device is questionable but I find it endearing. In 1938, KW proposed an enhanced version of the Pilot 6 with interchangeable lens and a better shutter. I hope I will find one copy of this version in the future.
