This company was founded by Curt Bentzin in 1889 in Görlitz‎, Germany. In 1902 Curt helped Carl Zeiss Jena to establish a camera manufacturing process (Palmos Camerabau). After the WWII, in 1945, Bentzin was renamed to Görlitz‎er Kamerawerke VEB and in 1948 to Primar-Kamerawerk Görlitz‎ VEB. In 1951 it was merged with VEB Feinoptisches Werk (ex. Meyer Görlitz‎), which in turn was acquired by Kombinat VEB Pentacon Dresden in 1968. All of the original Bentzin cameras were discontinued in 1954.
