The Super Pontura was the top of the range of medium format folders made by Balda in Dresden, Germany, before World War II.

The camera is a 6×9cm folder with a coupled rangefinder and a very sleek design. The rangefinder and the viewfinder — with automatic parallax compensation, very rare for the time — have separate windows under a long chrome top housing. Styling is similar to the chrome version of the Baldaxette, a smaller 6×6 or 4.5×6 model of the same period.

The lenses offered for the Super Pontura included:

  • Meyer Trioplan 10.5 cm f/4.5
  • Meyer Trioplan 10.5 cm f/3.8
  • Schneider Radionar 10.5 cm f/4.5
  • Schneider Xenar 10.5 cm f/4.5
  • Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar 10.5 cm f/4.5

All were available with a Compur OS shutter to 1/250, or optionally with a Compur-Rapid shutter to 1/400.
