Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

This 6x9 basic of 1949, resembles an hybrid of Photax and Fex (in the case of the latter, we know that it is completely normal because of the role of Fritz Kaftanski in the destiny of Fex). It has an instantaneous and a time exposure. It is possible to choose between two diaphragms and a yellow filter. The shutter release is at the end of the fixed tube of the lens. This is not a fix-focus, the distance setting is done while turning the former part of the lens.
