The Mometta is a 35mm rangefinder camera made by MOM (Magyar Optikai Művek/Hungarian Optical Works) in Budapest. It is sometimes qualified as a Leica copy, even if its appearance is very different. It has a focal plane shutter from 1/25 to 1/500s, and takes pictures in 24×32mm format.

On the Momikon, Mometta and Mometta II versions, the lens is a fixed Ymmar 3,5/50. The Mometta III and Mometta Junior have an M42 interchangeable lens, although the Junior does not have a rangefinder.
