Ernst Lorenz was a camera maker in Berlin in the 1920s (McKeown also lists a C. Lorenz of Berlin in about 1940, known for just one example of one camera). The Ernst Lorenz firm is itself known for only two cameras, both seen in very small numbers:
- The Clarissa is a strut-folding camera for 4.5x6 cm plates, with a focal-plane shutter in a wooden body, and always seen with tropical leather bellows.
- The Nacht Kamera is a copy of the Ermanox, also a hand-held, focal-plane-shutter camera for 4.5x6 plates. This is based on a similar wooden body to that of the Clarissa, but leather-covered, and with a large-aperture lens mounted on a rigid lens-tube in place of the bellows.
