The Wenka II is a CRF 24 x 30mm frame size camera with a behind the lens focal plane shutter. The interchangeable Xenar lens is fitted in a 40mm mount. This model is similar to the Wenka I (also produced 1951/52), but has a higher top speed (Wenka I is 1/500) and a green flash selector on the front of the body.

A further model (Wenka) was produced around 1955. This is almost identical in appearance to the Wenka I and Wenka II, and has a 1/800 top speed.
