The Traveller was an attempt to realize the twin lens camera concept as a light plastic camera. It's collapsible finder is two in one, a reverse galilean eye-level finder, and a kind of oversized brilliant finder as waist-level reflex finder, almost like the big finder of the Ensign Ful-Vue. But it is not a TLR finder with matte screen for focusing. Thus the camera's finder lens is not focusable. Another maybe minor reason to classify it just as "pseudo TLR": Its plastic lenses are not twins. The finder lens is a "Reflex Double lens" (double lens maybe meaning achromatic?), and the camera lens is a focusable "Super lens". The poor set of apertures f11, f16 and f22 makes it comparable to advanced box cameras like the Box Tengor. But the choice of two shutter speeds (1/25 and 1/50 sec., plus B) and the choice between the two finder types give it a clear advantage.
