   Have you tried John Craig? If not try him.
http://www.craigcamera.com He often has stuff which is not
on his on-line catalogue.
   Also, does the camera have any patent numbers on it? If
so see what's in them.
   There were four or five makers of one shot cameras in the
USA, Devin, McGraw, National Photocolor, and Thomas S.
Curtis, (I think I am forgetting one). They were used mainly
for high end advertising photography for years.
   There is a pretty good section on one shot cameras in
Joseph Friedman's book on three color photography.
