The Certofix is a vertical-folding camera for 6×9 cm exposures on 120 film, made by Certo in about 1930.[1]

According to McKeown, this model was first renamed the Certotix, and very soon afterward renamed again to the Certix, in 1931.[2] He lists only the Radionar lens, and the Vario shutter (but the example illustrated here has a Pronto).
