The Prefect was a Pseudo TLR-format roll film box camera produced by Haking's in Hong Kong from around 1957. Takes 12 frames on 120 film. Haking's Double Meniscus f.8 lens, with f/8, f/11 and f/16 stops. B & I shutter settings, with flash synch.
The Prefect has a spring-loaded cover on the red window, labelled "Empire Made" (at the time, a euphemism for Hong Kong - British territory until handed back to the P.R.C. in 1997) and an unusual catch holding the back shut. The catch has a rotating plate, centred on the tripod bush; turning this plate uncovers a sprung steel finger, which lifts, releasing a pin attached to the bottom edge of the back, allowing it to open.
Most Prefects are finished in black leathercloth, but some examples exist in grey (such as Sylvain Halgand's).
Virtually the same camera was sold as the Wales Reflex, but with the addition of an accessory shoe on the side - and the slogan "A CAMERA for GOOD PHOTOGRAPHY" on the box. A similar camera, with the same body and lens but different shutter and aperture controls, was the Halina Viceroy, of 1960.
