Balda Baldinette

Balda Baldinette folding 35mm camera

The Balda Baldinette is a compact 35mm folding viewfinder camera, quite similar to the earlier Retina models in appearance.

This model was manufactured around 1951 and this particular example is fitted with a Schneider-Kreuznach Radionar f/2.9 50mm lens in a Synchro-Compur shutter.
