Pilot Super

The Pilot Super is a medium format SLR camera made by KW in Dresden, Germany, from c.1939-1941[1], during the period that the company was owned by Charles Noble. It takes twelve 6×6cm exposures on 120 film, and can be converted to take sixteen 4.5×6 frames with an extra mask. It is a later version of the Pilot 6, using a similar chassis. Some early Pilot Supers have Pilot 6 nameplates.[2]
