This Coronet camera was a bit of a devil to do. The original bellows was too small for my clock movement so I had to make replacement bellows. I dismantled the old ones did some research and after a lot of cursing and fiddling I managed to make replacements but slightly larger. Rather than the leather material originally used I used a matt black fabric reinforced with 40 pieces of card carefully glued in place. The bellows were then carefully folded and fixed to the clock movement. Finally they were glued into the camera.
To change the battery, open the back of the camera, Partially colapse the bellows then remove the old battery..
Coronet Clipper is a medium format film folding viewfinder camera made by Coronet and introduced in 1959.
Instructions for use are printed on a small plate located below the lens, probably for those who usually loose or throw away the users manuals
The clock movement comes with a 12 month warranty.
It's a pity to see old cameras thrown out. They are so well engineered . I hate to see them in a cupboard or box by converting them into cameras they make an interesting conversation piece and have many more years of life.
