at http://lippisches-kameramuseum.de/Verschiedene_Hersteller/Rollfilm_Faltkamera.htm One can see a 6x9 rollfilm folding camera presumible from 1926 Curiously the unamed shutter CLEARLY seems to be one version of the GOMZ camra made after Vario type. The front pannel seems to come from the old Komsomoletz Could that be a LOST LINK? a TRANSITION model or a home made construction? Shutter thread are standartized and the no-name lens can be a rescued rear element of any camera Who can solve the problem? LP
this is quite an interesting find,with good timing as I am currently restoring an old Komsomolets right now. The shutter seems a lot like ARFO shutter actually but with different lens, the mount no so much... the Komsomolets vertical stand on which lens resides is more straight, this one is shaped like a spoon and the 2 release nuts for the lens carriage are more like on larger format ARFO-2 and 2A.. I agree, a lot of commonalities though!
Hi Luiz, it seems for me to be an old German Talbot camera with Vero shutter (engraving is also typical for Vero), these cameras were very popular in early 20s. It is a very good question, why the shutter is unnamed ???!!! Anyway I don't think, that this shutter has russian origin.
