I recently got two really old cameras, and I'm lost.
The cameras are an Agfa Silette, and a Welta Weltax.
I expected the cameras to have a focusing mechanism similar to rangefinger cameras, or split-prism or the like, but nothing.
It seems like both cameras' viewfinder is just glass or plastic and nothing else. In addition: The viewfinder of the Welta is terribly small, it physically hurts to look through. Am I missing something here too?
Is there some kind of trick or do you really need to bring your ruler and carefully look at the focus distance scale on the lens? I'm really lost on how to focus these, and all I can find is information about those split-prism or microprism and the like, which I don't see present on these cameras.
