History Of Use
The Flexaret camera was made by the Meopta company of the former nation of Czechoslovakia between 1953 and 1962. Due to this camera being of Czechoslovakian origin there is very little information available in English. It was very practical to use, especially the later model with a sensing lens Mirar II 1: 3.5 / 80 mm. All models of Flexaret were twin-lens reflex cameras with an aluminium body, and took square 6x6 photographs on 120 roll film. Some models were also capable of working with 35 mm film with the help of a special adapter. The possibility of using filters, sun visors, V sync contact for flash and sports viewfinder make this model an interesting and unique piece.
