I have two box cameras, a Balda Rollbox from my great-grandmother and a Brazilian KAPSA. But both cameras are still in Brazil. Fortunately my girlfriend has a wonderful camera collection specialized in German cameras of the 1950/60s. Among other medium format cameras she also has a Zeiss Ikon Box-Tengor 55/2 postwar version (1950-1952). The Tengor is an untypical box camera. Unlike normal box cameras the Tengor hasn't the typical and simple meniscus fixed focus lens, but a real doublet lens.
