Among the oldest folding 35mm film cameras, the Dollina by Dresden based company Certo was an incredibly advanced camera for it's time. This is the Dollina I which is the first model. It is a horizontal-bed folding 35mm camera with a simple viewfinder. The shutter is a Compur 300 while the lens is the Steinheil Cassar 5cm f/2.9 (3 element).

This camera is in excellent working condition and is ready to be used today with shutter speeds of 1s - 1/300s as well as T and B modes and aperture of f2.9. A well designed camera which can be folded while focused at any distance and can even be focused while the camera is still closed. Mechanically tested and works well at all shutter speeds.

Having been made in 1930's Germany, this camera is a piece of history on it's own and the brilliant design makes it a pleasure to shoot. Comes with a roll of our Fuji Superia 100 iso expired film.
