Certo Certina

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

With such a name of manufacturer and model, one believes more in one Italian camera than German; and yet Certo is an old firm of Dresden. The cameras manufactured after the second world war were thus East-German.

It is very basic, having of two apertures (8 and 11) and two speed regulations (B and M). Oddly, the M corresponds to an exposure and B with a snapshot, whereas in German instantaneous is said Momentaufnahme (!)

The aperture of the camera gives a rather particular result since the cap and the plate which supports the lens separate completely from the remainder. Approximately, you have in a hand of metal (aluminum?) and in the other of the metal covered with fabric.
