JID Sha (ジイド社) was a Japanese company in the 1930s and 1940s. In 1939, it was selling and perhaps making camera accessories such as the Swan (スワン) filters, and was based in Asakusa (Tokyo).[1] It was still in existence in 1948, selling darkroom accessories in Saka-chō (Tokyo).[2]

The Rosen 4.5×6cm folding camera made in the early 1950s has a JID logo, and was perhaps produced by that company.
