Knoedler cameras are not well known even in Germany -- where they were made. They are virtually unknown outside of Europe. They only produced small, inexpensive, plastic submini cameras during the 1950's. Much like the Hit cameras from Japan in the same era, the Knoedler cameras are much better as collector items than as usable cameras.
