Of all the things I know
I understand almost nothing

And then came Victor.


The Leica Shop in Vienna sent me today this elegant Pilot.6 SLR. In the thirties the Kamera-Werkstätten in Dresden developed this type of camera, small, for 120 film and later (1938 Pilot Super) even with interchangeable lenses. This one is around 1936 with an almost noiseless mirror+shutter. But then came the war. And Victor.
