The Wagen Six (ワーゲンシックス) is a Japanese 6×6 folding camera. Depending on the source, it is attributed to Yamato, probably the maker, or to Takemoto Shōkai, probably the distributor.[1] It might be a name variant of the Minon Six made by Yamato. It was briefly announced in Japanese magazines dated March and April 1953, and again in the May 1954 special issue of Photo Art about folders.[2] It is said to take both 6×6cm and 4.5×6cm exposures, to have manual film advance via red windows, a Wagen 80/3.5 lens and a synchronized NKS shutter (B, 1–200, self-timer).[3] A Wagen Six J is also mentioned, certainly a cheaper variant about which nothing is known.[4]

No picture of the Wagen Six has been observed so far, and no surviving example is known yet.
