Week 143 - Purma Special

This is something of a design classic, with its art deco lines and bakelite construction. It also has an unusual shutter, which has three speeds depending on which way the camera is held. The format is square (but not the standard 12 on a roll 4cm x 4cm, this takes sixteen 32mm x 32mm photos) so the orientation of the camera doesn't matter. There is no focusing, and a fixed aperture of f6.3. I've loaded it with Efke 100 film.
