Help identifying Leicavit rapid winder

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I have had my father's IIIG since the late sixties. When I worked in a camera shop after school I had the opportunity to add a Leicavit winder. Now I want to know if it is a SYOOM or a SCNOO or whatever. How does one tell?

SYOOM is the Leicavit for IIIG; the SCNOO was a similar device (but not yet nicknamed "Leicavit") for older-than-IIIC bodies (they were a bit shorter); SCNOO was simpler/rougher than SYOOM, with a finger-operated ring that wasn't retractable in the bottom, while the winding arm of the SYOOM is completely invisible when retracted.

You can find surely pics of them on the Net and in the books.

Luigi,

just to be precise, SCNOO were made for IIIc bodies also without trying or measure them , they have a big hole to anchor on the body plot instead of little one for the predecessors.

Jim of New York City, if it is SYOOM it is engraved on : Leicavit
