The '''Pearl III''' (late 1955<ref> Miyazaki, p.183, says December 1955. {{Kokusan}}, p.395, says that the first mention in Japanese magazines was in January 1951 issues. </ref>, inscribed ''Pearl III'' above the top housing) adds "semi-automatic" (auto-stop) film advance: once the "start" line on the backup paper is lined up with a dot on the film rail, the camera calculates how far the photographer may wind the film before each exposure. The red window accordingly disappears from the film back. An advance knob replaces the advance key of the previous models, it contains a manually reset exposure counter. The auto-stop mechanism was designed by Nakagawa Kenzō and supplied to Konishiroku by his company [[Aram|Aram Kōgaku]], at a pace of 2,000 units per month.<REF> {{SUG}}, p.76; Yazawa, p.13 of {{CCN}} no.254. </REF>
