Footnotes


  • The delayed development of the Doryu-16 camera resulted in the Japanese police ordering a camera to the same specification from Mamiya. The resulted Mamiya camera, properly called the Fast Action Camera, while less elegant was adopted and around 250 examples were delivered to the Osaka police headquarters training purposes. Most were, reportedly, later officially destroyed.
