This camera was made in the early 1930s in Germany. It takes 127 film, using the 8 frames per roll format. Many cameraa of this era used bellows to make them smaller when not in use, but this one uses a double helical screw barrel, which extends the lens to it's full extent with what seems like only a small amount of rotation. The Prontor II shutter on this one does not work below 1/25th sec, but otherwise the camera seems OK, especially as it is around 80 years old. I've loaded it with a roll of black and white Efke 100 film.
