"Rex Cameras"

PHOTOREX (Societe Francaise Photorex, St. Etienne, France)
Founded in 1944 by Andre Grange as a distribution company; began production of cameras in 1949, but was forced to cease operations in 1952 due to financial difficulties. The molds for Rex Reflex cameras were sold to Rene Royer, who continued the series with some changes under the name "Royflex". During its brief existance, the Rex Reflex introduced the feature of lens interchangeability on a 6x6 TLR. The first models used four screws one in each corner, to retain the lens panel. In 1952, a simpler system with two levers was introduced.
