歴史的大発見、小西本店のチャンピオンカメラです。1904年製です。シャッターは1とTで、1がインスタントで、両方とも少し鈍いですが動いています。レンズもきれいな方だと思います。ファインダー内の鏡はもちろん劣化はありますが、映像はきれいに見えてます! レンズの下に絞り表記がデコレートされていて、同じような押印でChampionと!プレートは付属しません。国産カメラ図鑑においては、"5星"の稀少品です。日本でも数台しか発見されていない逸品をゲットするチャンスです。

Historic major discovery, Konishi-honten Champion camera, made in 1904. The shutter is 1 and T, 1 is instant, both are slightly dull, but it is moving. I think the lens is also a pretty one. Of course the mirror in the viewfinder has deterioration, but the picture still looks beautiful shown! The diaphragm notation is decorated under the lens, also stumped as Champion ! Plate is not included. The "5 star" rarity at book "THE COLLECTOR'S GUIDE TO JAPANESE CAMERAS". It is an opportunity to get a gem that only few have been found in Japan.
