View Full Version : Guess the Mystery Camera
A week or so ago "backalley" sold me a mystery camera. When it arrived I savoured the mystery thru the unwrapping etc. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process and I am delighted with the purchase.
I thought others might enjoy guessing what the camera is.
Here it is - one part of the puzzle at a time. First clue is a photo of part of the camera - the release button.
P.S. I posted on this general forum so as not to give any further clues.
Is it a German Werra with a Zeiss lens?
It's a Werra II :D
Here's the viewfinder. Top shutter speed is 1/250. Any more guesses?
Well ... both of you nailed the make ... it's a Werra I with a 50mm 2.8 Zeiss Tessar and a Vebur shutter (1sec. to 1/250).
Either my clues were too easy or we have good experts on the forum (I guess the latter).
we have some smart people on this site!!
Thanks for the info thirteen! It seems like a good camera - I hope you enjoy it!
I always wanted to try one of those! I've studied it closely online :) The recessed shutter release is kind of unique.
There are quite a few unique features in the Werra. Great little cameras.
Here's my writeup about the Werra 3 (http://elekm.net/zeiss-ikon/werra3/)
Sooo, where's the completed puzzle picture?? :)
The shutter button was an easy giveaway.
Werras are fairly unique.

This was a fun thread. Maybe I will post my own mystery RF...
