Narciss (Creme, Early version)
This is a very interesting camera as it is in effect the first miniature 16mm Single lens reflex. 70% of the cameras were produced in 1964 so this is the most common year by far. The earliest cameras had a plate on the rear with the warning engraved on it.
This is not the earliest version, but the fairly early 1963 edition with creme leather covering.
The top is engraved directly over the lens with Narciss, in either Cyrillic or English and red filled. These cameras were originally packaged with case, film cassettes and a developing spool. The package also included a special lens adapter that functioned as an extension tube or to adapt m42 lenses for use on the Narciss .
