Unfortunately the original handle is missing but we will supply an appropriate one with the camera. (18501928) began his entrepreneurship with a shop for linen goods, trimmings and stockings in Dresden. In 1889 he and his partner Mr. Dresdner Photographische Apparate-Fabrik Ernemann & Matthias. Since 1890 they powered their factory with steam engines, and one year later, in 1891, Matthias left the company. Ernemann was self-educated about photography and talented for getting into that business. The first products of his company were wooden cameras for professional photographers. Until 1896 the company's own production was largely limited to the wooden parts; other parts had to be bought from suppliers. Ernemann wanted to gain full control on camera production, therefore he added four new departments for camera parts production. The booming camera industry in Dresden led to a period of overproduction, but Heinrich Ernemann knew how to get through the crisis: he transformed his factory to a stock market company, the Heinrich Ernemann, Aktiengesellschaft für Cameraproduktion in Dresden , founded in 1899.
In 1904, Heinrich called his son, Alexander Ernemann , back from the U. Where he had gone five years earlier to get international experience, to become technical director in the company; with him the cinematographic activities were driven further. The first cinema projector didn't work well, but that failure resulted in the construction of the steel projector "Imperator" in 1909. Alexander Ernemann also introduced more modern American ways of production and reward. This led to a strike in 1905 but put Ernemann into a better position when the photography industry suffered overproduction in 1908, forcing the company's competition to merge into ICA. During the war Ernemann partially switched to production of military products like its machine-gun camera and found many new customers for its "civil" vest pocket cameras among the soldiers.
The post-WWI times of the great German inflation until 1923 were good for Ernemann since inflation allowed low export prices for its products. In 1924 the company had to rationalize production, in spite of which. Ludwig Bertele developed the Ernostar. 1:2 asymmetric lens with six elements for Ernemann.
For this fast lens the company introduced the Er-Nox camera for 6x4.5 exposures in 1924. In 1925 a 6x9 format version followed, and the cameras were renamed Ermanox. The Ernostar lens could be improved. It was an unusually fast and large f/1.8 85mm lens, allowing photography in dimly-lit theaters and the like, using only available light. Finally a reflex version of the Ermanox was released in 1926. It is in very good condition mechanically and Cosmetically. These type of Legacy Silent Era Production Cameras were manufactured.
