Balda Jubilette

Balda Jubilette Balda Dresden has produced some nice cameras since the 1930s but lost momentum during the 1960s when they had to produce simple, inexpensive cameras and Japanese camera makers reached maturity and started selling cameras to (Wester-) Europe too.

The Jubilette was produced in 1938 and not only looks like a camera from the 1930s but also has the built-quality. My version looks like new and also works like new. Very cool indeed!
