Alpa Reflex 6 b
Alpa Mod. 6 with Old Delft Alfinon 2.8/50

Model 6, intorduced in 1956, had a split-image reflex rangefinder, optical viewfinder but no optical rangefinder

The b-models (1959) had a rapid return mirror and the typical ALPA film advance lever made. It had to be operated front-to-back rather than in the more common back-to-front mode. This unusual arrangement simplified the construction and allowed the user to keep his eye close to the camera's eyepiece while operating the lever.
