EFTE-2
1931-1933

The EFTE-2 was made in Moscow between 1931 - 1933 by a cooperative workshop, "Foto Trud" (Photo Work).

It is a folding plate camera using 9 x 12 cm sheet film, with focusing on the ground glass or by a folding frame finder attached to the side of the body. The EFTE cameras (there is also an EFTE-1) were manufactured by hand and evidence of this can be seen on the aluminum body, where file marks are visible onthe edges.

The example shown has a German lens, a Rodenstock - Munchen Doppel Anastigmat Eurynar, f 1:4.5 13.5 cm, and the shutter, also German, is an AG - IBSO. This is probably an early example of this model dating to 1931, since in 1932 Soviet shutters made by GOMZ were installed (using a Soviet made lens as well).
The Soviet-made lens was the Moscow Periscop f 1:11 150 mm. and the shutter had speeds of 1/25, 1/50, 1/100 + B & T.
