This 1931 to 1940 120 film folding camera initially only offered a 6x9 format but starting in 1933 it was able to take 6x9 and 4.5x6 exposures. The camera has an Ihagee Sol Anastigmat f4.5 105mm lens in a Prontor manual load shutter with speeds of 1/25 to 1/125 of a second and Time plus Bulb. The focus range is 2.5 feet to infinity and the apertures are 4.5 to 22. The camera also has a waist high brilliant and an eye level fold out frame viewfinder that came on the later models. The cameras came with a number of lenses and shutter combinations. 2860 refers to the catalog designation of the camera. Ihagee put a small catalog out every year other than the war years. The camera was manufactured by Ihagee Kamerawerk, Steenbergen & Co., Dresden, Germany. It produced a broad range of folding cameras with the name Ultrix before WW2. All Ultrix series were produced from 1922 to 1940. Before the camera will fold you have to set the focus range to infinity or you will bind up and risk damaging the struts. Other features of the camera are two 3/8 inch tripod sockets, delayed shutter timer, shutter plunger socket, closable red frame count window in the back cover, carry handle, and a removable front lens for cleaning only.
