Superb Vintage 1930's Certotrop German 6x9 Compact Bellows Camera:
THIS IS WHAT YOU'RE offerDING FOR: Here's a vintage Certotrop self-casing folding bellows camera, made by Certo of Germany in the 1930's, for 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch (6 x 9 cm) exposures on sheet film in their own special European style single holders (or on #120 roll film if you can find a Rada or similar adapter that fits). This example has the Bee-Bee model name on it, indicating it was sold in the United States through Burleigh Brooks. Other than some mist in the lens elements (which should "burn" away when the camera is used and sees more sunlight), it's in excellent overall condition. As you can see, it's in gorgeous cosmetic shape with nearly flawless external leather covering, and it features smooth focus, a supple light-tight bellows, clean ground glass and pop-open viewing hood, waist level reflex viewfinder, an additional frame finder, and a razor sharp Carl Zeiss Jena Tesaar 105mm f/3.5 lens in a superb Compur Rapid shutter with a full range of accurate speeds. Just an outstanding example of a classic compact German folding bellows camera from the first half of the 20th century! Check out the pic below...it's a little beauty!
