introduction | Baby-Max | Baby-Max "HIT" | Barlux

Arguably not a Hit camera, although there are also almost identical cameras but with a 'HIT' name plate, lens and controls. It has a fixed-focus lens and a shutter speeds of I and B, but it has an unusual shape for a Hit-type camera being much wider. The Baby-Max is similar.

The left hand knob is fixed - i.e. decorative. The spool is held in place by clips that slide out at right angles. The mechanism can be seen in the photograph of the inside of the camera.
