"Balda Cameras"

BALDA-WERK (Dresden, Germany)
BALDA KAMERA-WERK (Bunde/Westfalen, Germany)
Founded 1908 by Max Baldeweg, the firm was most noted for producing photographic accessories, especially film holders and rollbacks. In the mid-1920 s, folding plate & rollfilm cameras became an important part of the business.

After WWII, the Dresden factory remained. In 1951 the name of the Dresden factory was changed from Balda-Werk to Belca-Werk, eventually becoming a part of VEB Pentacon.

Max Baldeweg moved to West Germany and founded Balda Kamera-Werk in Biinde, West Germany in 1948. Camera production began in 1950 with Baldini, Baldinette and Baldafix.
