The identification of this camera is not easy because it bears no brand name. Those who regularly look at this site will remember the cameras sold under the Swiss brand Richard.

For an accurate determination of the model, it is "terra incognita": Goldeck or Gugo Knips (it seems that the names refer to the same device at different times).

It is a kind of large 24 x 36. but able to take 6 x 6 images on film 120. By cons, even with a focal length of 75mm (a little short, the diagonal of the format is 85 mm) requires a telescopic tube to put the lens to correct distance from the film.

A system prevents from  triggering when the tube is retracted. We must be careful to pull out the tube thoroughly.

the Pronto shutter has separate cocking and has no system preventing from multiple exposure. It goes from 1/25th to 1/200th as well as B exposure. The focusing is done by rotation of the front lens.
