(1950) A post-war camera from Germany sporting a 20mm (f4.5) lens with shutter speeds from 1/30 - 1/100, plus B. Unlike the post-war Hit cameras from Japan, this camera opted for paper-backed 16mm film and produced 9x12mm images. Today it's rather hard to find -- even in Germany.
(1960) -- This was an updated version of the Kalos with a few improvements in a more stylish body. The camera has apparently been seen with two different lenses -- but they are not interchangeable -- a 28mm or 25mm (f2.8). This model has more shutter speeds -- from 1 second to 1/250. Adjustable f-stops from f2.8 - 16. Even the viewfinder was parallax corrected, and a cable release connection was added. Some authors list this camera as the best quality 16mm paper-backed-film camera ever made. But then there weren't too many cameras that fell into that category anyway. These are even harder to find that the original model. Very similar to the Kunik Petitux.
