EFEKTA - Druopta Praha

All behold the Efekta - an old vintage Czechoslovak camera for 120 film format 6x6 mm.

This is beautiful and old vintage camera made in Czechoslovakia in the 50s. I bought this piece in aukro aukcion for 400 Czech Krons /20usd. The camera was missing the reel for film moving /was broken/, so i made it from plastic modurit. Because this reel is not really perfect some light went inside the camera. It make nice and interesting with the white rays on the picture.

The camera is from plastic bakelite material, which is very light. Manufacturer was called Druopta Praha. This is suitable for 120 film format for 6×6mm snaps. Aperture setting are from f/8 to f/22 while shutter settings support 1/100, 1./50, 1/25, 1/8 of a second. Rangefinder is Newton style and shutter release is located under his frames on the top of camera. There is only one glass lens in objective Druoptar 1:8/70mm and it is really sharp. There is a red filtered window on the back of the camera for checking number of pictures you made.

For testing purposes I used Ilford 400 B&W negative film. Result you can see in gallery ;)
