Welta Perfekta camera in ever ready case. A folding twin lens reflex camera for 120 rollfilm, fitted with Tessar f3.8, 7.5cm taking lens No 1452054, a Weltaskop f3.8, 7.5cm viewing lens No 676228 and a Compur shutter. This camera's unusual design with its collapsing lazy-tongs construction meant that it was very compact when closed. The reflex mirror folded flat when the camera was closed.
