Druh is a medium format film viewfinder like box camera made by the Polish camera maker Warszawskie Zakłady Fotooptyczne (WZFO), and produced around 1956-60.

Druh wasn't an original Polish construction. It was a direct descendant of the Pouva Start, WZFO redesigned and more similar to the Yunkor from KMZ. Druh cameras had several finishes in their production time.

It is nearly similar to Pouva Start but adding dual format that the finder is marked for the formats and metal ends of the body one of which is sliding latch of back cover. [1]

Its improved version is Druh Synchro.
