The Bolsey-Flex is a name variant of the Ising Pucky camera, made in Germany. It is a 6×6 pseudo TLR, with guess focusing, a 80/7.7 lens with three aperture settings (7.7, 11, 16), and a Time & Instant synchronized shutter. Film is advanced by a knob and there is double exposure prevention. The camera has a round finder window, and a small finder hood.
The Bolseyflex is a later variant, with a square finder window, a larger finder hood and a restyled body. The aperture numbers are replaced by Sunny and Cloudy indications.
Both models have a greenish leatherette finish.
