Launched in 1929. That would of made my dad 1 years old when this camera came out. Wow! My Aunt Vicki and Uncle John, left me a camera that was maybe used once before i had the opportunity to shoot some photos in 2011. The camera has its own leather case, another leather bag. I have the manual, one in English, and one in German. There's a flash, and a few other different pieces it came with. I look forward to keep this camera and passing it down in the family tree. One of a kind, Vintage in Mint Condition. 120 medium format black/white film is still very much available. The processing is usually about $7.00. To have the photos turned on to a cd is more. (actual camera in photo).
