is a very basic compact camera, probably not an ultra compact one. I
got it for next to nothing on a flea market, so I tested it
nevertheless. There is nearly no information about this camera.
is a German Company, founded in 1915 for metal and optical goods, which
changed its name to Carl Braun Camera-Werke in 1948. They made high
quality cameras at good prices such as the famous Paxette series. Their film cameras, especially the Nizo series, gained some fame.
They also made millions of projectors for diapositives named Paximat.
Camera production was moved to the Far East as soon as 1965. In the
70s and 80s they did the service for Konica cameras in Germany. When the
market for analogue cameras broke down, the company went bust and
reappeared as Braun Photo Technik which sells rebranded cameras of all
kinds, mainly cheap ones. There are more cheap ones on my plastic cameras page.
This camera is from the 1990s and has nearly no features.

camera is incredibly basic. You slide it open and push the shutter,
that's all. There are no features except forcing flash in backlight
situations. All the rest is all automatic. The camera indicates focus
range and flash in the viewer. The lens doesn't move and you don't hear
the focussing. But it gets everything right. Point and shoot as basic
