Optical Hybrid

Swiss Alpa cameras were an unconventional mix of two technologies, reflex and rangefinder. Alpa Prisma Reflex (1949, shown above), had mirror and prism as well as viewfinder/rangefinder similar to famous Leica.
Later models like Alpa 6 (1956, shown below), were equiped only with a viewfinder.
