|Founded in 1936 by Mr. King in the Black Forest region in Germany, where skilled craftsmanship was a long tradition. The company started as supplier for the radio and electrical industry. Camera production began in 1950 with the Regular. Later thee family business continued under the leadership of Mr King's son-in-law Mr. Bauser and in the 1980s was called Regula-Werk King & Bauser GmbH. Production of electronic flash units began 1960 and continued until the end. In 1962 Regular introduced the in-house designed and manufactory programmed Rectamat shutter. The "B " setting on the Rectamat shutter was a lever on the back of the top housing. Rectamat shutters were used on all Sprint, Sprintic and Sprinty cameras. Regular-bodied cameras were made in France by Timnty. From about 1977 Regular cameras were built under license in India. About 1984 they became insolvent and stopped manufacture of Cameras, apparently due to losses in the disc camera field. A new company culled Regula GmbH was founded in nearby Horb, which resumed production of electronic flash units and distributed bought-in Regular cameras. Production of the Regula 510 continued in Hong Kong. At the beginning of the I990's Regula GmbH went bankrupt. Many Regula cameras were sold under other names. Regulars own "second brand" cameras were sold as "Bali", "Schmidt" and "Tickyphot'. Large quantities were made for Foto-Quelle, Germany, and sold under the Revue name. With an order uf 200 or more cameras any desired name could be put on the cameras, so you will find distributors names on many Regular cameras.|
