View Full Version : unknown box camera
i don't know if this is the right forum for my question,
but i had somewhere to write!
i own a box camera (you can see the picture attached) but i don't
know anything about it.
there is no maker,or model name,or anything engraved on it.
What are the initias on the wing? There was nothing inside the camera?
the initials are FK
nothing at all inside or outside.i double checked it!
camera is made of metal,black mat painted.
I couldn't find it here: http://www.boxcameras.com/ on a quick look round
But a deeper search may find something, maybe they can help.
try posting it on http://www.toycamera.com
Can you tell something about the film/plate-format or show some photos of the other side/inside the camera. There was a german maker Fritz Kaftanski who made a "Schüler-Box" in 1929, but this was for plates.
Indeed some similarities in design to some of the Kaftanski cameras.
here are some more pictures from the back of the camera!
there is a FSU camera FK but it is a large format folding camera.
