Nicely enamelled on the sides, this folding camera is automatic, i.e. that there is to get out no more on the lens/shutter block for the set up. The press of a button located on the side is enough to open the flap and to spread the whole… in theory because with time it is not completely any more true and it is necessary to help the opening of the flap a little. To close again it, it is necessary to grip the two pallets located under the lens to unbolt the position, then to close again the door.


The first destruction and the need for concentrating German industry on the manufacture of armament stopped its manufacture. In 1948, it was again manufactured, but while having lost its side lacquering.
