Voigtländer Brilliant V6
Voigtländer Brilliant V6 This camera looks like a TLR, does have two real lenses but as you can't focus the bottom lens, it really is a box camera. The viewing lens and ground glass are very clear (hence it's called a Brilliant viewfinder), very nice to use. A copy of this cameras is apparently still being produced by Lubitel.
