They are shown in rough order of creation here, beginning with the original Kamarad "Companion" model made by Bradac Brothers in the mids, through the takeover by Optikotechna in , Flexette, Optiflex, Autoflex and the first Flexaret on to the reformation into Meopta in the Soviet era as later Flexaret models. In difference to later Flexaret cameras the focusing of these early cameras is by turning of the front element.

Both lenses are connected with string hidden under a metal housing between the lenses. This system was first time used by Kamarad II. Although the housing looks very similar and the design was for sure inspired by this camera, by Kolaflex are lenses connected with wheel".

Incidentally, I am missing the Optiflex model from this sequence. If you have one to sell, please let me know! I recently managed to obtain one of the rare Kolaflex models - an unusual bakelite design fromthe mids - see below.

Click on the small "thumbnail" pictures below to go to larger ones. Companion This is the second generation model. The lenses are coupled by string pulley. Originally named as the "Kamarad II", but translated for sale abroad as the "Companion". Both lenses Meyer Trioplan 75mm f2. The lenses are still coupled by string. Note that it still bears the Bradac name. Lenses still coupled by string pulley. Lenses Optikotechna Mirar 75mm f4.

The early Flexaret II was produced by Optikotechna before the takeover. The Type 1 has a flat viewfinder like the Flexaret I. Lens Optikotechna Mirar 80mm f4. The Type 3 here looks like later Meopta Flexarets, which had the domed tops. It has the Meopta name on the hood and the lenses.

Little else was changed from the previous model; it is safe to assume that resources were scarce in Czechoslovakia at this point. Taking lens Meopta Mirar 80mm f4. Taking lens Meopta Mirar 80mm f3. Taking lens Meopta Belar 80mm f3. The sports finder has a small centre window for this. Main changes are more stripes on front and double-knob focus swivel. Can take 35mm film with the special adaptor kit.

It cannot take 35mm. Usually with black covering. Stripped of the frills on the VI and VII models, it is very reliable without the automatic picture counter, which can break. The Standards were manufactured both with black and silver-grey leatherette the VI and VII models only use the latter. This one is essentially the same as the previous Standard, but with silver leatherette and "Standard" on the nameplate Taking lens Meopta Belar 80mm f3.

The main change from the VI is a shutter upgrade. As far as I know, it was only made with the silver-grey leatherette covering. It can take 35mm film, with a special adaptor set available.

I know very little more about the firm, which specialised in cheap and fairly basic cameras, mostly in Bakelite Druopta Druoflex This is a basic bakelite pseudo-TLR, of which Gejza Dunay says: "last and best bakelite TLR made by Druopta probably from , this very simple medium format TLR camera was inspired by the Voigtlander Brillant. This camera is surprisingly rare now, I can find only uncracked of them every year!

The door moulding says "Foka, made in Czechoslovakia"! Presumably this is especially true of the Kolaflex, as he fails to list this amongst the seven models he knows of. What is unusual is its rather stange counter housing on the right hand side.

Growing up in the United States, we were taught a bit about European history in school. We talked a lot about the Roman and Ottoman Empires, the struggles of England and France, and how western colonization helped form the basis for the US. Towards the end of the school year, we got into the first and second world wars and how the Soviet Union was formed. While I am sure countries like Czechoslovakia came up in school, for the life of me, I cannot remember anything I would have learned. The world is a big place and many countries have deep and rich histories and sadly, there is only so much time that can be spent on one area, and this is a part of the world I know little about. When it comes to technology and precision instruments like cameras, you always think of Germany, Japan, the United States, and even England.
