Chronology of cameras Certo 

Initially called Certofix, then Certotix, the Certix cameras adopted their name starting from 1931. They are high-quality folding cameras. They are described as automatic, meaning that opening the bellows automatically sets up the lens, ready for the first photo. The Certix cameras offer multi-format capabilities on the same type of film. This holds true for almost all models, except for the entry-level ones, which are limited to a single negative format: 6 x 9 on 120 film. The others offer two or even three formats (6 x 9, 6 x 4.5, 6 x 6), which sometimes makes the viewfinder and the back a bit complicated with multiple windows (Advertisement from 1935).

The Certix was a big success for Certo, and there are numerous variations with different combinations of lens and shutter. The Certix also evolved over its existence, with changes in the position of the viewfinder, the material of the covering, etc. Additionally, Certix cameras are found under distributor brands as well.


This folding is easy to recognize: its name is written on the front of the door and engraved in the leather covering the back of the camera.
