Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

It is about an authentic bellows camera. That does not see outside, but the curious ones which will open one IIc will be able to check that inside there are bellows in fabric.
This Retina with rangefinder differs from the precedents by a lot of things. The bellows are thus hidden outside by a thicker plate . The body has softer angles. The system of opening of the back was re-examined. The part before lens is interchangeable. The lens 50 mm is here Schneider Kreuznach Xenon C F/2,8, but one could transform it into 35 mm or 80 mm.

This model was manufactured with more than 136.000 specimens between 1954 and 1957.
