Chronology of cameras Certo 

Small details such as the model name engraved below the lens mount, the distance scale plate, the horizontal shift knob, the black lacquered finish of the ground glass frame, and the embossed Certo emblem on the leather all contribute to giving the Certotrop a beautiful finish.

This camera was produced starting from 1927 in 6.5 x 9, 9 x 12, or 10 x 15 cm formats. It strongly resembles the Voigtländer Bergheil. The main feature, like the latter, is the interchangeability of the lens-shutter assembly, mounted on a bayonet, although the operation may seem less smooth. It also allows vertical and horizontal shifts via knobs with markings.

This specimen is in the 10 x 15 format with interchangeable lens, making it the 1927 Model V.
