The 1924 Ermanox was introduced under the name Ernox. It was made by Ernemann in Dresden. The camera has a huge and unusually fast Ernostar f/1.8 lens. This large aperture made available light photography a real possibility. It was this feature that made the camera famous, especially in the hands of Dr. Erich Salomon (1886-1944), who used it to make candids.
