Welta Weltur 6x6

I have had this camera for a while and every time I pick it up - it amazes me how well built and thought out it is. It dates to about 1937 and still works great. After minor RF/VF clean and adjustment it's a nice option for a MF in your pocket. So, last weekend I took out out for a walk around the block, let it breath some air. And here is what I got back - prints were scanned on a flatbed. Minor adjustments on PS. Amazing what those old cams can do. Welta Weltur 6x6/645 with Xenar 2.8 lens. Just wanted to share.

I have a Welta Weltax, the non rangefinder 6x6 and 6x4,5 version of your camera, It also takes superb pictures. My Voigtlander Baby Bessa is in the same class too.

You have a rare folder, and it still works beautifully. Good shots.

Mine has a 75/2.8 Xenar. Pretty much the same lens, I suppose.
I need to use it more - its a cool camera.

Thank you. Yes, mine is in a good condition - like new bellows, clean lens, great working shutter. Once I had RF calibrated, it works well.
