The Panta was a metal viewfinder camera made by Dr. Rodehüser. It was a sturdy camera but not too heavy since its body was made of aluminium. It was made around 1950. Its specialties were the camera opening mechanism with one of the thumb wheels on top as unlocking lever, and the pull-out lens barrel with a pin in the lens barrel flange. This pin locked the shutter release lever when the barrel was pushed into the body.

Different variants were made.
