Template:Japanese postwar 6×6 TLR (M–Z) The Sanonflex is a Japanese 6×6 TLR announced by the distributor Takasago Shōkai in early 1953.

The focusing is done by moving the front plate back and forth, and the film advance is controlled by red window. The camera can take 6×6cm and 4.5×6cm exposures. The lens is a 80/3.5, the synchronized shutter has B, 1–200 speeds and a self-timer.

The only source found so far is Kokusan kamera no rekishi, itself citing a column of the March 1953 issue of Ars Camera.[1] The camera was perhaps never sold.
