One of a number of 16 on 127 strut cameras produced in Germany at this time. The popularity of the Leica caused other camera makers to produce miniature, collapsible roll-film cameras sharing some characteristics of the Leica - ease of use, readily set-up, eye-level finder. Some had a rigid lens mount such as the Kolibri and DreiVier, others bellows such as the Gucki, Fotet and Megor.
