Here is some knowledge of the Austrian 1956 product.

Opening angle in black plastic shutter: 160 degrees
Rigidly controlled pulldown claw from the front according to ISO 69, leaving film at +3 position
Lateral film guide by spring blade at optical axis height

Main shaft bearing claw cam and shutter as well as governor shaft in miniature ball bearings, these under spring blades
Main shaft steel worm, driving worm gear plastic; grease

Three-blade centrifugal governor, horizontally arranged, leather-covered braking disk against steel arm


If one is to clean and relube the mechanism one has to totally disassemble the camera. No bearing can be lubricated from outside. Brass gears, not ground

The 25mm 1.9 lens has a ten blade double iris diaphragm.

Hope this will help somewhere sometime.

Very useful post - Thanks!
I have several of the C16s and they are getting slow with age (and old grease)and can barely pull film through the gate. They definitely need to be disassembled and lubed.
I have made a PDF of the instruction manual if anyone needs it.

Thank you Steve!


I've downloaded that manual you made on A/City.
