The Rolleimatic was designed by Heinz Waaske. Its lens covering shifting door is also the film advance lever. When opened the lens is popped out. It's a kind of compact camera. It has automatic exposure which may be not quite durable. Otherwise it could have become one of the compact camera classics.
