Week 18 - Laack folding 127 camera

This is an interesting little camera. It is about the same age as last week's Korelle, probably made in 1932. There is no name on the body, but the lens gives the maker as Laack of Rathenow. The "barn doors" design is quite unusual, and this camera's body appears to be identical to the Rodenstock "Rodinett" and the "Ingo" by Glunz. The lens is f2.7, which is a larger aperture than normal for this type of camera. It takes sixteen 3cm x 4cm photos on a roll, I've just loaded it with EFKE 100 black and white film (same as last week).
