The Original Alpa Reflex (Type 2)

Alpa Reflex with Angenieux 2.9/50 lens

The ALPA Reflex was first shown to the public at the 1944 Spring exhibition at Basle Mustermesse. It reflects Jaques Bolsky's original design.

A special feature to be found in some later ALPA cameras, too, was the combination of the reflex principle with a built-in additional non-reflex viewfinder

Production period:1944 to 1952.
