Some sources say that the company Tōa Kōki Seisakusho was called Takahashi Kōgaku (高橋光学) until about 1938 but this is unconfirmed. (See Tōa Kōki.) This is probably why many sources attribute to Takahashi the Arsen made by Tōa Kōki.

A company called Takahashi (高橋) was mentioned in the "Kokusan shashinki no genjōchōsa" ("Inquiry into Japanese cameras"), listing the Japanese camera production as of April 1943. It was cited as the maker of the Star Semi 4.5×6 folder and of various lenses and shutters.

Camera list Edit

The Semi Solon and the wartime Starflex were perhaps made by Takahashi too. (Like the Star Semi, they was distributed by Ueda and had Takahashi lenses and/or shutters.)
