Balda Baldamatic I

Traduction de Geoffroy GUILLON

A very beautiful camera, obviously the design was carefully thought out. Built quality is excellent and bears no criticism. The viewfinder is very luminous, and so is the rangefinder. The collimated frame is very sharp...

The back of the camera can be completely removed when loading the film. As for all Balda cameras of that time, winding on is done with a sort of “key” located under the bottom plate. Its only failing is the lack of exposure indication in the viewfinder.

This Baldamatic I exists in several combinations of lenses and shutters : : Baldanar (Balda), Westanar (Isco), Color-Ennit (Enna) or Xenar (Schneider) for the former, and Prontor SLK, Prontomat or Compur Synchro for the latter.

It has a coupled cell.
