The Magic Reflex

This site is dedicated to the first 35mm single lens reflex camera with pentaprism constructed in a series and regularly commercialized. The Rectaflex was first produced in Rome in 1947 in three different basic models, subdivided in numerous variations, and it was sold throughout the world until 1955 when its production was completely suspended.
