There is also the Pax 35 and other Pax rangefinder cameras made by Yamato.

The Pax is a simple camera for 6×6 cm exposures on 120 film, made by Braun in Nuremberg in about 1950.[1] It is the predecessor of the Paxina series of cameras, and very similar indeed to the first of that series. It has an f/7.7 Paxanar achromat lens, mounted in a pull-out lens panel, at the front of a lens tube square in section. It has three aperture settings (f/7.7, f/11 and f/22), and shutter speeds 1/100 and 1/30 second, plus 'B'. There is no focus control. The camera has a reverse-Galilean viewfinder built into the camera body.
