The Paxette Electromatic I is a 35mm viewfinder camera produced between 1959 and 1964.
In 1959 the Braun Paxette electromatic was advertised as the world's first fully automatic 35mm camera. Its selenium meter controlled the aperture and gave a red/green light sufficiency signal in the viewfinder. But other automatic functions were missing. Instead, the focusing of the Ennagon 1:5.6/40mm lens was fixed, and it had only the single shutter speed 1/40 sec. Film speed had to be selected manually to obtain proper exposure by the aperture system.
