plunger 59 upwardly towards the top of the cam_

as shown in Figure 1. This is accomplished by
anchoring one end of spring 61 on boss 60 and
Figure 7 to permanently locate and seal them in
the tube in gas and dust tight relation. This
sealing operation can be quickly carried out by
securing the other end to pawl 82 (Figure 4).

insures a solid feeling take up action and com

keeps the spindle parallel to the sprocket so as
to insure an ef?cient winding operation.
As shown in Figure 2, the lens ?nder tube 88
is secured as by rivets 89 to the bottom surface
of the top wall of the camera in alignment with
the center of the lens tube. Referring to Figure
'7, tube 88 is preferably made of a thermoplastic
composition having a dull ?nish which can be
initially molded to provide accurately spaced lens
seats 9| and 92 at opposite ends for the ?nder
lenses 93 and 94. When lenses 93 and 94 have
been seated, the ends of tube 88 may be speedily
beaded over as shown at 95 at the left end of
image on the ?lm. Plunger 6B is now in its up
permost position and pawl 62 is engaged with
notch 18, as shown in Figures 1 and 2. Under
these conditions the shutter mechanism is free
to be actuated to expose the ?lm and advance of
the ?lm toward the take up spindle is arrested by
The operator sights through ?nder 88 with
his ?nger on button 66, pushes it down to de

ger. When the plunger slides downwardly, it acts
through lever 46, link 41, lever 45, shaft 42 and
trip levers GI and 39 to actuate the shutter and
make the exposure. In my preferred embodi
ment, this instantaneous exposure is 1/100 second
but it may be any desired value without depart
ing from the spirit of the invention.
Adjustment of plate 53 to shift the pivot axis

parts as well as for manufacturing tolerances,
and aids adjustment during assembly,
Springs 55 and 81 both urge the shutter actu
ating mechanism toward the position shown in
Figure 1, but each functions separately. Spring
55 is the main spring preventing looseness and
play in the linkage between shaft 42 and plunger
