Genos Rapid

The Genos brand manufactured very much (and perhaps exclusively) with bakelite. This allowed to get into unusual shapes. This camera, hesitating between box and TLR is an example, with forms unnecessarily tormented.
This camera has three levers visible in the lower part of the front face.
Leftmost offers two apertures marked I and N. The center one marked G / O allows for positioning in front of the lens a yellow filter  (Gleb/ohne).The third one indicates the time Z or instant M exposure.
