The Picoflex is a TLR camera for 3x4 cm exposures on 127 film, made by WICA (Wiener Camerawerkstätten Raimund Gerstendörfer) of Vienna in about 1930.[1] It is metal-bodied, with black leatherette covering and nickel-plated trim and fittings. The body is very squarely built. It has a Compur shutter with speeds to 1/300 second. McKeown describes an example with 5 cm f/2.9 Steinheil Cassar lenses,[1] and a camera with those lenses was sold in 2001 by Christie's.[2] One with 5 cm f/2.9 Rodenstock Trinar lenses was offered for sale at Westlicht.[3] Focusing is by a knurled knob on the right side of the body. Film is advanced using two red windows.
