LMar , Jun 29, Ed Banger is already 15 years old! Designed with a simple shutter and lens, it was aimed at the low end of the market, but has a full focus lens which means its a step up from many focus free cameras of the day. This September, he invited us all to celebrate with him – and brought the beach to New York City. That brings back memories.

Main street of the village. This is a scale focus camera with no focus assistance. Looking forward to see your pictures!!! Hi Dennis, Yes as far as I can remember this is correct. A strip of film exposed with a Koroll II leaves 15mm worth of film unexposed. I found someone on Flickr who has shared the original manual in English, Italian, and French here. The Koroll II was a lot of fun to shoot and in my first roll, I never once missed focus and my exposure was pretty spot on.

I figure it is not worth anything but, logging in here, I am impressed with your pictures. Nice photos, even with the sun in the “wrong” place. nencini


After the war, camera operations would resume with a few pre-war models being made, along with a variety of new ones. Consonni was trying to say. I had difficulty translating this portion of the history, but it would seem that Bencini might have been an independent contractor for a variety of Italian firms. Enjoy his fantastic results! An equipment freak – moi? Like I said I got the camera, it was an e-bay purchase, and it arrived in really good condition. There is a reserve price on this lot.

Cabbage trees are even to be found here in Europe now! They were all taken at our local ‘community village’ – benciini historic buildings have been preserved and are currently being used by a variety of community organisations. Learn more about it in this installment of Lomopedia.

The Bencini Koroll 24s uses ordinary film, but exposes 24 pictures on it.

For the 2nd exposure, wind the film until the number 1 is in the right window. I could not find any info about whether that is another acronym or what it kogoll for. The next step is simple: The photos came out really well for its age.

When the Bencini arrived, I could see that it already had a roll of film in it. It came with a leather carry case, and a little leather container attached to the strap. You placed the highest bid! Focus best in centre of image. You haven’t verified your email address yet. benclni

For what it is worth, there is a manual for your camera on this site. Sold by Boots the Chemist in the UK? Center sharpness is very good, but it drops off quickly towards the edges. Get it in our Shop. I might take mine to visit my local repairman and see if he can free up the focusing.


Sensing a need to be able to repair and possibly even build his own cameras, Bencini sought and received permission from his superiors to attempt the repair of these cameras himself. Introduced near the end of the 50s, this medium format SLR was the brainchild of a then-known camera manufacturer from Germany.

The all metal body is lightweight, but sturdy. I sacrificed one exposure and fired it while looking at the lens so that I could be sure the shutter was working, korolll it was. Sign in Sign in New user?
