There is also a Bakelite Perfekta 6x6 viewfinder camera made by VEB Rheinmetall.

The Perfekta TLR was made by Welta in 1934. It was the successor of the Superfekta. It has a peculiar folding design to make it fit into a vest pocket. It takes twelve 6×6 pictures on 120 film. Folding TLRs were a great innovation, but proved to be a dead end in camera development. This was because they're rather expensive to produce and the bulky viewfinder will not fold with the rest of the camera.

Specifications[]

The Perfekta is found with a pair Meyer Trioplan 75/3.5, Xenar or Tessar 75/3.8 lenses. The shutter is a Compur B, 1 to 1/300s, or a Compur Rapid with speeds 1-1/500sec. plu B and T mode. Despite of its folding design it has TLR specific parts like the big waist level finder with ground glass. It has also an exposure counter.
