The Mikono-6 (ミコノ6) is a Japanese camera taking 6×6cm exposures on 120 film, announced in 1953 by Kojima Kōgaku Seiki.

Description Edit

The Mikono-6 has a rigid rounded body, perhaps made of bakelite as was the case of the Mikono Flex. It has a rounded top cover containing the viewfinder in the middle, the advance knob at the left end and an accessory shoe on the right, as seen by the photographer. The name Mikono–6 is written at the front, below the viewfinder. The lens and shutter assembly is attached to a U-shaped metal plate at the front.

The lens is a three-element 80/3.5 and the shutter gives B, 10, 25, 50, 100, 200 speeds.

Commercial life Edit

The Mikono-6 is only known from a single advertisement in the June 1953 issue of Shashin Salon where it was announced as "available soon" (近日発売).[1] The price was given as ¥4,800, case included. The similar looking Mikono-35 was announced in the same advertisement, for the same price.

No surviving example of the Mikono-6 has been observed so far, and it is not known if it was actually sold.
