The italian Turin-based company FILMA was founded in 1935 by Antonio Bencini. The life of this company lasted only two years until 1937 when it was acquired by the giant FERRANIA.
F.I.L.M.A. was the acronym of Fabbrica Italiana Lavorazione Macchine Accessori.
The limited number of devices produced and the short operating life of the company (2 years) makes all FILMA brand products a real rarity for collectors.
The two cameras are made of metal sheet painted with black enamel. Leatherette is clean, uncommon but complete. Operation are very simple. To load the film it's necessary to extract the front part of the by pressing the two release buttons (two small bulges covered by the coating). For the 4.5x6 model only, the film rewind lever must also be pulled out slightly. In the 6x9 model the handstrap is missing.
A 127 and 120 take up spool is present inside.
Cameras are in pretty good working contions, no corrosion or dings, the shutters works and the lens still look fairly clear, and will come with a 120 and 127 rollfilm (dated but usable) produced by EFKE.
