This is a cheaper model than the Automat which was available at the same time. The major difference being the that the New Standard had to be set to 1 in the red window when loading, the Automat was automatic in this respect. The camera does not appear in the Amateur Photographer review published in June of 1939. The price was 26.10.0.
