Plate camera Ihagee Photoknips no. 1
This genius compact plate camera is 4,5x6cm big and can be folded to the size of a pack of cigarettes.
The shutter works. Bellows are intact and light proof. Some mild cosmetic wear, but on the whole very neat. The iron thread of the viewfinder is a little bent, but that can be adjusted.
Film holder is also intact and complete.
This Ihagee Photoknips is quite rare and a nice Collector’s Item!
