The Nitor and Nitor Luxus are folding cameras for 6x9 cm pictures on 120 film or 6,5x9 cm pictures on plates. They were first made by Rietzschel, and continued by Agfa from 1926 onwards.[1]

Both camera models have been observed with dial-set Compur shutters and Agfa Helostar Doppel-Anastigmat f4.5/10.5cm lenses. The camera has rack-and-pinion focusing, and the front standard has geared rise and shift. There is both a brilliant finder (with bubble level) and a wire-frame finder.

The Nitor Luxus is technically the same as the Nitor but has brown leather bellows and covering.
