The Angel Six (エンゼルシックス) is a Japanese 6×6 folding camera, attributed to Tōkai Shashin-yōhin, probably a distributor only. It was briefly announced in a column of the November 1953 issue of Ars Camera. It is said to take both 6×6cm and 4.5×6cm exposures, to have manual film advance via red windows, a front-cell focusing Angel 75/3.5 lens and a synchronized NKS shutter (B, 1–200, self-timer). No picture of the camera has been observed so far, and no surviving example is known yet. An Angel Six was purchased at a Goodwill shop in Indianapolis, Indiana in 2013. In fair to poor cosmetic condition, it is fully functional at all shutter speeds and has a functional self timer.
