Bolsey Jubilee

As with most Bolsey cameras, such as the B2 and Model C, the Jubilee maintains a strong family resemblance. It is, for better or worse, the most technologically advanced of the bunch and was manufactured during the last year of Bolsey’s existence. Like its brethren, the Jubilee has the Set-o-Matic light metering system, which worked very well.
