Pentacon Penti

    Prev Next

    Yes I know, I already have one of these in my collection, but that one has turquoise enamel and this one is oxblood, and I can't decide which I like better. Plus it was only $13, so there was no way I was passing it up!
    This is the first model of the Penti, made in Germany in 1959. It takes 35mm film in special cassettes.

      I haven't tried putting "normal" 35mm film in it, and I don't know that it's possible. The Penti was made for special film cassettes. Have a look here:

      thanks man! checked it out ... if you have 2 cartridges(?) you can fiddle the film of a 35mm in one and the cam will transport it in the
      other cartridge and from this spool it back in the 35mm thing...
      I will give it a try one day!

      I have already one from my mom's uncle. Blue one. I've taken photos with this small fantastic camera many many years before. Now It's waitings for me. I really like my mini nostalgic camera even if I dont use :) I beleive it should be a great idea to re-produce Wenta Pelti!

      This design would be interesting as a basis for a retro-styled digicam.
