The Koroll II was made by Bencini in Milan, Italy starting around 1962.
It is an interesting medium format camera designed to use 120 roll film, but takes small 30mm x 45mm exposures which are only slightly larger in size than 3cm x 4cm images shot on 127 roll film.
The Koroll series was in production starting in 1951 and ran through the mid 1960s. All Korolls were basic cameras with simple lenses and shutters. Some took 6×6 images on 120 film, and some used regular 35mm film taking standard 24mm x 36mm shots. Despite their long production run, they rarely were exported out of Italy, so finding information about them elsewhere in the world is difficult.
