Jump to: navigation, search

Between 1932 and 1938 Balda introduced four different camera's with the name Frontbox. This second version from 1935 was only a minor upgrade from the original model. The box camera was now fitted with two brilliant finders and a new look with a larger name plate and a shiny metal rim around the front.
