The more I learn about old brands and models the more I think i notice that 1958 seems to be "the" year everything changed from folding cameras, to rigid bodies.

Does anyone know which company came out with the very first camera that wasn't a folding camera?
The Pentax was the first SLR with a built in, coupled rangefinder.
