Certo Dollina II

Traduction de Manuel M

Dollina II fact belongs to this small group of  little hybrid cameras, like Foth Derby. They are above all folding cameras, but having undergone a modification to associate a rangefinder there. That gives to an aspect a little lump, at the limite of the “homemade”.
The rangefinder is distinct from the centring, but is coupled with the adjustment of distance from the lenst. The big serrated roller located at the top of the camera moves the plate which supports the lens and the shutter, by tensing of the scissors.

The back of the camera is equipped with a table of depth of field.

There exists a chrome version of this camera.

In 1940, this camera was distributed to the United States, by Burleigh Brooks. It was sold from 50 to 72 dollars.
