The Cresta is directly inspired by the shapes of the Brownie 127. Its difference of size, due to the format of film, makes it less becoming.
It is equipped with an add-lens integrated for portrait. For the set up, it is necessary to pull one of the two metallic parts which exceed on the side of the plate which supports the lens. The other allows setting up the integrated yellow filter.

It should be noted that it misses the frontal lens of the specimen presented on this page.
