About Kowa

Kowa is a Japanese company, which manufactured cameras from 1954 to 1978. It continued to make binoculars and telescopes (among much else), and in 2005 marketed a "spotting scope" with integrated digital camera, thereby again becoming a camera manufacturer of a sort.

The company entered camera production in 1954 with the Kalloflex 66 TLR, then made a series of 35mm cameras with a leaf shutter, some with a fixed wide-angle or tele lens and some with an interchangeable lens. Many of these were rebadged by Graflex as the Century 35 series.... from
