Goldstein Fotobox

This model resembles the Metabox by its general design and its size but it is different: sports viewfinder / no flash sync socket / trigger not " streamlined " / no handle and no support preventing the camera from tipping when placed on a table / no cover on counter window / metal opening lock
 and especially , if the principle of cocking the shutter by rotating the rewind button is the same, the shutter is very different.

 Other important differences: weight less than 220 grams for the FOTOBOX against 390 grams for the Metabox , not far from the double !
 It also seems that the grip was not very well defined : the orientation of the face plate suggests a use with the viewfinder at left and the release button on top, while the representation ( drawn ) of the camera in advertisements has a nameplate METABOX oriented differently suggesting a grip identical to the Metabox version.
