Tiranty was a French camera manufacturer based in Paris. After WWII, Tiranty made a number of cameras licensed from the British firm Coronet. It manufactured a variety of cheap box and folding cameras until 1967. Several Coronet camera models were made in France, some with Boyer lenses, and some with instruction imprints in French.

The earlier Tiranty box camera models are the continuation of pre-WWII British made Coronet models.

All of the Tiranty (Coronet) box camera models are in medium format, 6x9cm frame with roll 120 film. They have a simple one speed spring rotary shutter. These boxes are offered with various meniscus type lenses.
