Need help to identify this tiny Certo

Postby fbsgfoto » Mon May 10, 2021 11:16 am

Need your knowledge to identify this camera. I´ve just purchased this little Certo plate folding camera and I cannot find any information or images about it, Its approximately for 6x8 plates sort of. I´ve red about a series of Certo Cameras, the I, II, III, VI, VIII, XI and XII and could be one of them just because I also cannot find information of any of them.
Please help me to identify the model.

Could it be part of the Certotrop range ?

I was recently said it I a Certolob 6,5X9, which differs a lot from its bigger Certolob brothers

I don't think it is a Certolob - your camera has a rising-front system for raising the lens-panel, I don't see this on the small Certolob.

Maybe you can check this web site http://photographica-world.de/_CERTO.htm
(send an email to drmue@arcor.de who owns the web site) He seems to have several catalogues - but they are not all on line.
