Excerpt from Beginners' Troubles Classes of Cameras. The box cameras have the advantage of always being ready to take a picture by Simply making the snap and winding the film until the next number appears at the red window. They do t require focusing. The lenses are single meniscus achromatic and require good strong sun light for successful snapshots with the single speed of snap (about 315 second) which the Shutter will give. There is, in the very cheapest forms, only one opening (usually called stop or diaphragm in front of the lens; but the next larger size has three stops, each smaller Opening requiring double the exposure of the next larger. Their use for both snapshots and time exposures is most clearly explained in the booklet which comes with the camera.
