It had an original design, very rounded like a piece of soap, and a black finish. It was an advanced camera with a coupled rangefinder and a folding optical finder. The lens was either a Schneider Xenar f3.8, or Zeiss Tessar f4.5, in a Compur-S or Compur-Rapid shutter.
The Regent II was introduced in 1939. It had a more conventional design with a squared chrome top plate, and with more features, but only single format - 6x9 frames, on 120 film. The release button acted at the same time as a focusing button. It had a Schneider Xenar 10.5cm f3.5 and a Compur-Rapid shutter to 1/400. The Regent II is considered to be very rare.
