There is also a Navax for 35 mm film, made by INA Werk.

The Navax is a fixed-lens viewfinder camera for 4×4 or 4×6.5 cm pictures on 127 film, made in 1952 by Westfälische Kamera und Apparatebau in Heeßen, Germany. McKeown lists it as having an Enna Ennar 75 mm f/3.5 lens and a Vario or Prontor-S shutter;[1][2] an example with a Steiner Steinar 75 mm f/3.5, also with a Vario shutter, was sold in a past auction at Christies in London.[3] The lens tube collapses into the body for storage. The camera has separate reverse-Galilean viewfinders for each format, and red windows for each format.[2] It has a cold shoe on top of the viewfinders, and a PC socket on the shutter.
