Chronology of cameras Zeh 

First attributed to Rüdenberg, a German mail order distributor selling under his brand cameras manufactured by others, this camera would be a Zeh Automat and not a Leonar Schnellfocus as previously thought. Its viewfinder is remarkable because it is made of a curved mirror reflecting a non-distorded image and of astonishing clarity. This viewfinder is from Emil Busch brand and is named Sellar.

The struts kinematics is very complicated, but ensures a fast and carefree deployment (hence the name of the original model).
