Wirgin Auta

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

The only inscription which makes it possible to know the mark of this 120 folding camera finds outside the flap. In the leatherette the name Wirgin, not easily readable appears.
The model is Auta of 1949. It is about the resumption of Auta built pre-war period. The combinations shutter/lens are numerous. Here, it is of Schneider-Kreuznach Radionar 4,5/105 (the models of pre-war period seem to have the focal distance expressed in cm) and about a shutter Prontor-S (1/200 secondes). The finder is optical, but can also be a simple framework finder.
