Adox's folding Golf models were made from 1954 to 1959. These cameras are not related to the 35mm Golf models. This series of cameras are viewfinder folding cameras for 2¼" x 2¼" exposures on 120 film. These cameras were sold in the US with either Adox or Schleussner branding.
Model I cameras included a 75mm Steinheil Cassar coated f/4.5 lens in a Pronto shutter, speeds 1/25 to 1/200 sec plus "B". Self-timer, built-in flash synchronization. The camera's top contains the optical viewfinder of reverse Galilean type; upon the top are the film advance knob, the shutter release button, an accessory shoe and the front opening button.
Model II cameras were identical to Model I, except with Prontor S shutter, speeds 1 to 1/300 sec.
Model IV cameras were identical to Model II, except with Steinheil Cassar coated f/3.5 lens.
Model 63 cameras were identical to above cameras, but with a coated Schleussner Adoxar coated f/6.3 75mm lens in Vario shutter. Speeds are B, 1/25, 1/50 and 1/200 sec. The diaphragm is stoppable down to f/22.
The camera case for an Isolette might fit for a Golf too. The Version Golf 63 S has a Pronto shutter with self-timer. Other small differences are possible between Golf 63 entities, for example the color of the release button might be black or metal-colored.
