Once upon a a time there was a dwarf who was the court jester and guardian of one very huge wine barrel at a castle in Heidelberg, Germany. The dwarf's name was Perkeo. A couple of centuries later, a once proud optic maker - Voigtlander - used the name for a couple of their smaller folding cameras. If you shoot 6x6 medium format the Perkeo II is truly a dwarf medium format. Unlike many 6x6 folders like of its time, the Perkeo II is fitted with a frame stop, that allows for automatic film winding - once the photographer sets the mechanism at frame #1. I don't know if it's because modern 120 film has a thinner acetate base than it did 60 years ago - but the Perkeo II allows for a 13 frame. The Perkeo II makes for a nice piece of kit for a hiker. A Color Skopar lens set in either a Compur or Prontor shutter puts the camera in the same league as an ZI Ikonta. Like the Ikontas without built-in rangefinders, this is a scale focusing by guestimation camera - which is doable, if your subjects are further than 10 feet away and you have enough light to shoot at f8 or f11.
