Certo of Dresden used the Dolly name for a variety of cameras. This model takes 16 pictures on 127 film, and uses a scissor-strut mechanism for locating the front panel, which makes for remarkable sturdiness, and has a manually-erected frame finder. This example is modestly equipped with a 5cm/4.5 Certar Anastigmat lens in a three-speed Pronto shutter. Certo remained active long after WWII, at first on high-quality 35mm and 6X6 folding cameras, then concentrated its efforts on low-price snapshot cameras.
