    Hi, I have came along to this camera, but could tell the brand / type. Anyone seen similar before, or know what is this?
    Lens as far as I can tell CZJ Tessar, maybe 6,3 245? Not sure.

    Don't know but looks similar to a 'Mentor' or a 'Junior Special'.

    Hello Polski,

    I also think it is an Mentor. It looks (almost?) the same as mine, except you're missing the leatherette on the body.
    Mine uses film sheets and came with some film holders. I can make some photos this week if you like, so you can compare more closely.
    Let me know.
