Vintage 6 x 6cm folding cameras.

117 roll film became available in 1900 specifically for 6 x 6cm format, but never really became popular, being discontinued in 1949. 120 roll film was introduced around the same time in 6 x 9cm format, or rather its imperial equivalent, using a different spool. The first uses of 120 film in 6 x 6cm format came around 1928, by which time both the film and development chemistries had evolved to the point where the image grain was acceptable. 6 x 6cm cameras became common in the 1930s but the 6 x 6cm folding camera had it's heyday in the 1950s.

Those in the LICM collection are listed here in date order, starting with the oldest.
