In 1931 Ihagee launched its Parvola. It used 127 film. The telescopic thread-in-thread screw-out lens barrel was its characteristic feature. One version was made for 3×4cm exposures, another with frame size 4×6.5cm. The one on the image above is for the smaller format and has an Ihagee-Anastigmat 50mm f/4.5 lens in a Pronto shutter. It was also available with a Tessar 5cm f/2.8.
