    1930's and 35mm Cameras

    Leica rangefinders appeared in the 1930s and I think the Contax II & III but where there any other 35mm cameras that appeared between 1920-1940?

    Or were they all medium and large format cameras.
    Stack of 35mm stuff, some 120 stuff and lots of other junk to make it work

    Keep it simple. ~ Alfred Eisenstaedt

    A lot, Exacta, Praktina (just), Super Nettel (Zeiss), Retina (Kodak/Nagel) to name a few, mainly in the 30's.

    Argus. In fact, just the other day I bought an Argus AF (c. 1937) at a flea market for five bucks on an impulse.

    1935 Certo SuperSport Dolly is a 120 film folder with an f/2.8 7,5 cm Zeiss lens.

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    The Canon story begins in 1933. The company's first commercial camera, the legendary "Hansa Canon", which was also Japan's first quality 35mm camera, was released in 1936. Read more about Canon's early days here:

    Remember that the Kodak Retina from 1934 was the first 35mm camera to use the modern 135-cassette.

    I have Retinas, a Balda Baldina and a Certo Dollina. Welta also made some 35mm cameras.

    Also, from Zeiss Ikon: Contaflex twin-lens reflex, Nettax rangefinder (built on the Super Nettel platform), Tenax II and the Tenax I.

    A piece of trivia about the Tenax cameras. The Tenax II was introduced before the Tenax I -- probably the first time the "II" version of a camera was introduced before the "I." Note that both are marked Tenax.

    Regarding Canon's early days, despite being named "Precision Optical Instruments Laboratory," Canon -- bizarrely enough -- couldn't produce its own lenses and used Nikkor lenses.

    In addition to those already mentioned:

    Exakta (really someone should have come up with this one earlier...); Praktiflex; Univex Mercury; Russian Sport and FED; Jaeger LeCoultre Compass; Agfa/Ansco Memo; Agfa Karat; Asahi Bussan (Ricoh) "Super Olympic"; Kodak No. 00 Cartidge Premo*; Zeiss Ikon Unette*; Ernemann Bobette*; Tourist Multiple; Jules Richard Homeos; Rothgiesser & Schlossman Rothschloss; Tougodo Meisupi, Meikai & Hobix; Anderson; Smith; Simplex; Schoenander; Minigraph; Cyclocamera; Autocinephot; Hewit-Beaufort; Morsolin Argus (Italy); Le Phototank; Cosmos 35; Mentor Werke Kamera Rapid; Seischab Esco; Werke Simons Sico*; E.

    Some were earlier than 1920, none later than 1939.

    * Used unperfed 35mm film with a paper backing, much like 828 film
