The Virtus was similar to the Perkeo but took 120 roll-film rather than 127. Early models had the folding stand to the side of the folding bed, later it was in the middle, some (? early) versions have covers to the red windows. As well as the f3.5 Skopar lens the Virtus was available with an f3.5 Heliar or an f4.5 Skopar, the shutter was either a rim-set Compur or an Embezet.
