  Williamson Pistol Camera

The Williamson Pistol Camera was manufactured by the Williamson Manufacturing Company Ltd., of Litchfield Gardens, Willesden Green, London, N.W., in circa 1933. Designed for the use by light aero-plane owners. The camera was constructed entirely out of aluminum, covered in a drable Kryslac enamel. It was fitted with a f4.5 Ross Xpres lens of 5-3 inch focus and was capable of accepting telephot lenses like the Dallmeyer Dallon and the Ross Teleros. The shutter was an all metal ever-set louvre providing speeds up to 1/200th of a second. Although it was designed as an aero camera, it could also be used of subjects on the ground. It was offered in a 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch size and was made to accept plates, film-packs, or roll films. It was orginally priced with the standard Ross lens for £25 complete.
