Reflekta II


Twin lens camera

The Reflekta II is a simple but very interesting twin-lens reflex camera. Its history is a good example of the agitated times in the German photographic industry between the 1930s and the 50s.

Focusing is done by a lever under the taking lens. The framecounter is a “classic” red window on the back of the camera. Reflecta II was sold with three different shutters, Cludor (B, 1 – 1/200s), Junior or Vebur (B1 – 1/250s). The camera has a flash contact (x sync.)
