Lenses: Clean and clear, minor handling marks.

This camera was manufactured by the firm Optikotechna Prerov in 1939. It created three separate negatives 24 x 24mm on a 35mm black and white film. An advanced prism system split the light and ensured minimal light loss. The camera was the smallest and lightest three-colour camera ever made. Another example exists with body and lens numbers 2929 107045 suggesting that only a very small number were produced.
