    Hello!

    Today I bought this nifty little West German camera at a flea market. The bit with the brand name fell off, and I have no idea what brand this might be. It takes 120 film and has no sort of guidance on the advance whatsoever (I was guessing :p ). I'll put up some pictures. Hopefully someone can recognize it!

    Thanks!

    Guilelessly,

    L.

    Looks like a Vredeborch.
    Probably a Felica.

    Like this one.

    Excellent eye, Compur. I think you nailed it even though the posted pic was reversed in a mirror (note wind know is on the wrong side).

    Here's Camerapedia's page:

    Felica - Camerapedia.org

    Compur's link "Collection Unclassified" lists it as a 4.5 x 6 format (16 shots per roll, ) but Camerapedia and one other lnk I found list it as 6x6 (12 shots per roll, red frame # window dead center). The shape of the VF fits with 6x6 rather than 4.5x6.
