Some featuresEdit

  • Lens: Isco-Göttingen Isconar 1:2.8/43mm
  • Viewfinder: optical
  • Focusing: turnable front lens element adjustable for distances from 1m to infinity with help of split image rangefinder
  • Shutter: Prontor-S with speeds 1 sec. to 1/300 sec and B, opens only with film in camera, speed 1/50 or slower flash synchronized, a variant of the camera had a Prontor-SVS shutter instead
  • Aperture: 1:2.8 to 1:16
  • Film transport: Long lever and rewind thumb wheel. Since 1953 the camera was equipped with a short lever which was more adequate since the "rapid" lever needed two 180 degree movements to advance the film and to cock the shutter for the next exposure
