Made in 1963, it has a 30mm f2.8 lens and shutter speeds from 1/30 - 1/125.
I've loaded it with expired Ektachrome p1600 slide film, which I plan to cross process in C41 chemistry.

It feels quite solid, and the wind on and shutter release feel nice and definate.
I've loaded it with a roll of Rollei Retro ISO100 black and white film.

The Prontor SVS shutter has a full range of speeds from 1 sec to 1/300, and the lens is an f3.5 80mm Xenar.
I will be loading it with a roll of expired (1979) Kodacolor 400 film.

This is the little brother of the Korelle 4x6.5cm camera that I used in week 17. They both take 127 film, but this one uses the "half-frame" format, and so takes 16 exposures per roll, compared with 8 exposures on the bigger model.
This class of camera, the pre-war 127 folders, are probably my favourites, they are smaller than the 120 versions, and seem to me to have more character.
I've loaded it with Macocolor film, though when it was made it would almost certainly only have been used with black and white film.
