The cameras you will hardly ever see:

The ones you MAY get (if you are very patient and/or have a LOT of money):

The following cameras were series produced in small numbers.

Zunow of Japan. 1958. Produced for a short time. Number unknown, but very few. I have seen one -1- for sale. Not working but VERY expensive.
Firstflex (also Plusflex) of Japan. 1958. Uncertain number produced. This first version is rarely seen. (Once every 2nd or 3rd year?) Less expensive, though. Presented under PP SLR. 1955-1959.
Wrayflex II of England. 1959. Produced for about a year, less than 350 pieces. Available around once a year. Just missed one. (Feb 28.2014)And let another one go. (January 2016.)

The ones you will never see:

The following were prototypes, some possibly only drawings.

The Gamma Reflex S of Hungary. 3 prototypes made 1949-50. Lens: Ludwig Meritar 45/2,9. Built at MOM on a Duflex house. A cooperation between Gamma Works and MOM. (Gamma house, MOM prism.) MOM= Magyar Optikal Müvek.
Uniflex-Hungaretta of Hungary. Prototype. 1957. Little is known about this camera. Not even further described in "Hungarian cameras".
Virax 35 P of Hungary. 1959. Prototype. 3 unnumbered houses produced. Lens: MOM Pannonar 50/2,8.
Correcta Reflex I of Hungary. Prototype 1959. In production plans for 1961 at MOM, Budapest, but never produced. Probably also planned a Reflex II with light metering.
Malik of France. Prototype. 1960. 4 lenses were made for it. Impressive! Note the winder to be operated by right hand pointing finger. Only Alpa had this feature. Note a zoom lens to the right!
Malik ad. It says "bientot..." Soon. Still waiting. Had I been in Paris between the 19th and 28th of March 1960, I might have seen it. Probably very few did. First with a zoom lens (focal variable).

Never seen, never heard of. Most certainly done by some previous owner to personalize it.
