    Looks like a Agfa "SUPER SILETTE - LK" or "Optima"

    "gaffer" tape over the Agfa trade mark clearly seen in this alternate shot:

    Interesting -- she must have small hands, since the camera isn't that large!

    Yeah, no kidding. I assumed it was a medium format camera based on its size next to her (tiny!) head.

    I don't think she is holding it to her face, certainly not to the viewfinder. If it is held in front by several inches it will obviously appear to be larger. In the alternate shot I linked to there is clearly light from the RHS (as we view) hitting the cheek under the eye. It's not a picture of her actually using the camera, it's a prop
