This is a very nice camera from the late 1950s, with the three-lens turret and an adjustable aperture. You can't see it from this photo, but the film door on the other side swings open and the chamber is spot-frosted (the metal panel is machined to look like silvery fish-scales). A very nice touch. Wish I'd had this when I was a kid taking movies.
Also note the colored lines on the viewfinder—each colored line corresponded with a lens (which had the same color line band on the lens cone).
Next year, Wollensak will add a photocell and release this as the Model 46 (turret) and Model 47 (single-lens).
They must have sold a million of these things. I see them all the time.
