There are various lens/shutter combinations of the Edinex II. Some cameras have hinged back for easy loading. Some cheaper versions have fixed lens.
Early Edinex was the same with Adox Adrette. Some models were sold in the USA as Midget Marvel, and Candid Midget altough not marked as such. Edinex cameras present some identification problems because most do not bear any model name on the camera, but only in catalogs and advertising.The issue is further muddied by the use of different model designations for the same camera by different advertisers. In addition the adds use various names for Edinex II, like Edinex, Edinex I, Edinex-S.
It is best to ID of your camera that searching the McKeown’s 12.ed., 2005, pp.1001-1002.
