    Ihagee Photoknips Compact Plate Camera No. 100 (circa 1920's)
    for 4.5 x 6cm plate film.

    Front supported by cross-swinging struts. Wire frame (view)finder.
    Achromatic lens. Front wheel with 3 stops. Shutter 1/4-100 & Z settings.
    Pop-up cloth viewfinder hood on back for viewing ground glass screen.

    I came across this little gem (about the size of a pack of cigarettes), while helping to clear out a massive trove of photo equipment in an old house that was being cleared for sale. At first I thought it was just a small film back, off an old camera, that was nowhere to be found. I tossed it in a box with other 'junk' parts to be looked at later. Wasn't until I actually 'assembled' it fully, cleaned it and did a bit of research on it that I found out it was a complete camera, and a rare one at that! Almost in a class of it's own.

    I've seen a photo of the original box that featured a 1920's flapper girl holding the Photoknips while taking a photo. Would love to find one of those...
