The Fujicaflex is a 6x6 TLR camera that uses 120 medium format roll film and introduced by Fuji in 1954. It uses a Fujinar 83mm f/2.8 3 group/5 element lens with a Seikosha Rapid shutter with speeds of 1 to 400 with B. The lenses take bayonet type filters.
The front of the body has dials to control aperture and shutter speed with two windows to view the settings. This is similar to the Rolleiflex style controls. The shutter release button is removable and can attach to the lower right or lower left side of the body. The right hand side of the body has a knob that controls both focusing and winding. Push the knob towards the body for focus, pull outward for film advance winding. Film advance winding is stopped automatically and does not require a red window. A counter is used instead.
