This is a Printex presscamera made in USA. This is the smaller sized one, but there also exists a 4x5" sized version. Basically it is a chunk of metal with simple mechanics for focussing the Kodak Ektar lens. The focusing mechanism is connected to the Kalart rangefinder and there is a secondary finder on top and a totally unusable scale on top of the lens barrel. Despite being usable with only a one focal length and looking a bit strange it feels surprisingly good to use. A simple camera for simple use and it does it well. I would definitely like to have the bigger sized version so if you have one for sale, please let me know. There was also a rather unusual flash for this camera and I am interested in obtaining this device too.
