Ihagee folding camera model?

Postby decynr » Mon Oct 28, 2019 6:55 pm

Hello! I recently inherited an Ihagee folding camera and am having a tough time discerning its model. It has its original case and appears not to have any film in it currently. I've researched the Ihagee sites and can't tell what model this is -- I can get it to about the late 1930's, I think, but wondering if anyone has seen one like this.

Markings on the camera:
Ihagee
No. 47633
Jhagee (the ee's are a touch worn from folding, I presume) - Anastignat
1:6.3f = 10.5 cm
Original Gauthier
Pronto D.R.P. D.R.G.M.
I can't find any other markings or designations on the body itself. It's in fantastic shape if it's really as old as I think. The bellows are fully intact, shutter appears to be working. Looks like a fun addition to my collection.

Images also attached.

Hello,
unfortunatly i cant find this exact cam, but i think its a later kind of ultrix, between 1930-40 cause this Kind of opening mechanism came after 1930, but you may look yourself, here are a lot of early ihagee catalogs, in german, but the name and the pictures should help

Sorry for the bad English, Iam not a native speaker ;)

Thanks for the link, Mike, great source!
Looking at those catalogs it looks like Auto-Ultrix 3860 (1931-1937).

Wow- thanks! The Pronto dial at the top was throwing me for a loop when I was looking around. Appreciate the insight!

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, yours is 1931-1933.
