Braun Paxette/Colorette cameras Braun Paxette Paxette (and others) Most people will know the name Braun from a brand of electric shavers, but it is also the name of a which once upon a time made many cameras, of which the Paxette range is best known. Somewhat confusingly the name Paxette comprised cameras with several different interchangeable lens mounts as well as fixed lenses. The first Paxettes (ca. 1950) were compact viewfinder cameras not unlike the Voigtlander Vito B, although they lacked wind levers, having wind knobs instead.
They had extinction meters, which are exposure meters that display an increasing amount of numbers depending on the brightness of the subject. Later models introduced several new features, such as a rapid wind lever, a raised top housing with uncoupled or coupled rangefinder (the IM and Super Paxette, respectively) A Braun Paxette with Steinheil Cassar VL 45mm f/2.8 lens.
This is a very early model, as it has an accessory shoe integrated with the top housing. Tazkira tul aulia urdu pdf reader. Later production, like the example below, had separate accessory shoes slightly raised above the top housing. A Braun Paxette with Roeschlein Pointar C 45mm f/2.8 lens. The Super Paxette was the name for Paxette models with a coupled rangefinder. Most of these were interchangeable lens cameras, but not the Super Paxette I shown here, which had a fixed lens. To make space for the rangefinder the top housing had to be made a little higher.

Another innovation compared to the previous model was the addition of a lever wind. A Braun Super Paxette I with Roeschlein -E- Pointar 45/2.8 lens.
This is the same lens as on the Paxette I above, the -E- designating that is was a rangefinder version ('E' for Entfernungsmesser, the German word for rangefinder). Admittedly the Gloriette was not part of the Paxette range, but since it was a fixed lens viewfinder made by Braun it made sense to add it here. The 1954 Gloriette was a rather simple camera much like the early Agfa Silette or non-folding Retinette cameras. It came usually with the rather ubiquitous Cassar lens and either a Vero, Pronto or Prontor-SVS shutter. It featured a wind lever but not much else. The film transport and shutter cocking system were a little unusual; the winder would only cock the shutter at the very end of the stroke, which made it feel uneven.
