1938 Welta Weltur, 6x6/ 6x4.5 DUAL Format Coupled Rangefinder Camera


The Welta Weltur was a high end medium format, coupled rangefinder camera that was produced in Germany from 1935 thru 1940 by Welta Kamera-Werke. At that time Welta was well known and well respected for its quality products. The fit, finish and performance of this camera was outstanding and it competed successfully against Zeiss-Ikon and Voitlander for the attention of affluent buyers. The Weltur was one of the cameras that marked the high point of European camera development for the pre-war era.
