Wirgin Edinex (II/v2)

This Wirgin Edinex, listed as v2 in some descriptions, just II in others was produced by Wirgin Weisbaden around 1951. It is a compact scale focus camera, with bottom load and handy door on the back to facilitate feeding film to the take up spool. The focus ring seems a bit fiddly and imprecise, otherwise it’s a well designed bit of German engineering.
