(1960) - Similar to the Kalos Special the Petitux IV has shutter sppeds of 1/2-1/250. It was the top Kunik model and possibly the best quality 16mm paper-backed- film camera made in Germany. To the basic Kalos body was added a focusing Roschlein Supronar f2.8/25mm lens, the same as the Petietux. Versions where also made with Will Wtzlar Wilon coated f2.8/25mm lens and Staeble lens. The body mounted shutter release was connected to the film wind and prevented double exposure. The viewfinder is parallax corrected and silvered on the front surface.

The films choice was black and white 15/10, 17/10 or 21/10 DIN 16 exposure (1,25DEM) and colour film (3,45DEM).
