Shimura (志村) is a Japanese company, which made the Mascot subminiature camera around 1950. The full name is unclear: the most reliable source says Shimura Kōgaku (志村光学) but others give "Shimura Koki" or "Shimura Seiki Co." instead.[1] It is said that the Mascot was developed on behalf of Tōkyō Kōgaku, of which Shimura was perhaps an offshoot or a subcontractor.[2]

Notes Edit

  1. "Shimura Kōgaku": Kokusan kamera no rekishi, pp.365 and 432. "Shimura Koki": McKeown, p.890. "Shimura Seiki Co.": Sugiyama, item 5062.
  2. Kokusan kamera no rekishi, p.432: "Tōkyō Kōgaku had it made by the separate company Shimura Kōgaku" (東京光学は志村光学という別会社でやっていた).
