Balda Baldak-Box

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

This metal box is of poor manufacture and very often the years overcame of sleeving or the chromium-plated metal by covering it with a fine layer of oxidation. Metal is fine and the camera for lack of rigidity tends to become deformed. On the left side, one sees two pull knobs. One is the instantaneous/ time exposure selector and the other makes it possible to choose one of the two apertures.

Inside, on the internal “skeleton” of the camera, is inserted a mysterious small key. It is present in other models of the mark. It makes it possible to tighten film after this one was installed in the camera.
