The Certo Dollina was made in the late 1930's in Germany. It is a tiny folding camera about the size of the LCA and takes regular 35mm film. Amazingly, it has strap lugs so you can put a neck or wrist strap on it. The lens is a 50mm f2.9 so quite fast for this vintage. The viewfinder is built in and although tiny it is very bright. One of the coolest features is that you can wind it and it will stop on each frame automatically...the shutter is a Compur so you have to cock it each time before you snap the picture but this allows for doubles which is nice! Definitely one of the best 1930's folding cameras I've ever seen.Taken by clickiemcpete with a Certo Dollina 1930's loaded with Kodak Gold 400 (35mm) film in Gill, MA, United States. This photo can also be found in the album Certo Dollina Test Roll.
