Among my cameras is an Edixa Reflex with three lenses in a fitted leather

It is an example of Wirgins' first SLR focal plane shutter, and also the
first German SLR with focal plane shutter.

Built like a little tank, it still works.   Wirgin built a bunch of small
viewfinder camera, most were modest and inexpensive, but there was a
standout, the 1930's Edinex with a Schneider lens, and Compur-Rapid shutter.

See more here.

They made a number of very interesting cameras.
