I love medium format folding cameras. They allow me to always carry a medium format on my pocket. The Franka Solida range is amazing in manufacture quality, reliability and as practical shooters.

They were manufactured around They all use film giving me twelve exposures per roll of film. The Solida I is the least sophisticated of the three I own. I bought it from an English gentleman, who told me that this camera was his seventeenth birthday present, from his brother, who was stationed in Germany at that time. The lens is a Frankar - Anastigmat 75mm, The Solida IIE, is a more sophisticated model, with a built-in, uncoupled, range finder, a better lens and shutter.

This was one of the first folding cameras I bought. The range finder was non-operational. I send it to repair, it was a loose mirror. Later when I gained more confidence in my mechanical skills I made a complete CLA to the range finder, that was quite misaligned vertically.

I have an anecdote about this camera: The other folding cameras I had, when I bought this one, in order to fold I had only to force down the struts. When this one arrived I opened it and was incapable of closing it. I turned it upside down, looked everywhere but to no avail. I handed it to my wife, not telling her about my difficulties, and asked her to close it.

What she did, to my complete surprise, immediately. It was a good laugh afterwards. I bought this one with the leather case and a set of filters, in a leather case also. Cock the shutter, then pull back the button and push the cocking lever some more, about 5mm.

This sets the self-timer. The built-in range finder is uncoupled, it has double exposure prevention and a film reminder on the film advance knob. One distinguishable feature in this camera is that the bellows bed swings to the right, while in the other models it drops to the front.

This lens is a beauty and what can I say? These folders are among my most cherished cameras. Edit - For a very comprehensive information about these and other Franka Models visit:.

Franka Solida III

Franka Solida cameras, like the Balda cameras, were kind of middle-of-the road consumer folders, often outfitted with inexpensive 3-element lenses like Enna Ennagon and Schneider Radionar. Compared to what you see on 35mm negs, even a reasonably fast 3-element 75mm lens can be a great performer when stopped down a bit. And a camera like this folds up relatively compactly for easy transporting. As with the Balda Baldix , one of the nicest things about this little classic is the perfect placement of the shutter release button.
