Film Camera of Week 1 – Reflekta
Reflekta was East German TLR made from 1949 till mid 50`s. It shot as most TLR`s in 6×6 format, using 120 film. This camera has integrated 75/3.5 lens so it is not changeable. Shutters were made by four different manufacturers so top speed varied from 1/200 to 1/300. Slowest speed was 1 second with additional bulb mode.
Only manual of this camera is available at KEH.com for little over 1$. There is one right now on Ebay with no bids, 4 days to go and starting price is 10.60$ http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-c1949-RICHTER-REFLEKTA-120-TLR-camera-/180747845211?pt=AU_Vintage_Cameras&hash=item2a15693e5b#ht_546wt_1397
