Goldixette Viewfinder Camera

The Goldixette is a viewfinder camera for 6×6 m (2¼ inch square) pictures on 120 film, made in the late 1950s by Goldammer, near Frankfurt am Main, Germany. An identical camera was sold as the Goldeck 6×6 model V (which was made with both top- and front-mounted shutter release).

The camera is of a style common in popular cameras of the time (similar to, for example, the Dacora Digna); rather than folding with a bellows, it has the lens and shutter mounted on a rigid lens tube that collapses into the body. It has a 7.5 cm f/7.7 Gugomat lens; the aperture can be stopped down to f/11 (by switching in a fixed-aperture stop). It focuses to two metres. The shutter is an Acro (a Gauthier model) with speeds 1/25 and 1/75 second, plus ‘B’. The shutter release is on the front of the camera; it is threaded for a cable release. The shutter is synchronised, with a PC socket, and there is a cold shoe on the top. The camera has a reverse-Galilean viewfinder.
