The Venaret is a simple box style camera that takes 6×6 pictures on 120 film. It was made by Vena in Amsterdam, Netherlands, around 1949. It has three shutter speeds, T, 1/25s and 1/50s. The shutter is of the guillotine type. Four apertures can be selected on the front of the box; F/7.7, F/9. F/11 and F/16. The lens is a Vena-Amsterdam-Doublet 75cm/7.7. The shutter is triggered by a lever on the right. Some models have an accessory shoe on top. This is a camera where ease of production clearly prevailed over ease of use. It has a post-war material shortage feel over it.
