The Iloca Synchro Compur Aut-O-Matic features a built-in rangefinder and a built-in light meter, making it one of the first semi-automatic cameras of that era. This quaint camera is indicative of the shift that photography was beginning to undergo in the 50s, from being an esoteric hobby requiring specialization and expertise to being an accessible tool for the public. For this reason, it an excellent SLR camera for beginners. Iloca cameras were produced exclusively from 1950 to 1959, by Wilhelm Witt of Hamburg. Due to their commitment to high quality and innovation, their products were exported to the United States, where they were extremely popular. The Synchro Compur was representative of Iloca’s goal to produce more automated and user-friendly cameras for the common man and the photography enthusiast alike. It is sturdy without being bulky and has a sophisticated chrome finish. It comes with the original hard leather cover, slightly worn, with scuff marks in the back and front.
