The Microflex is a crank-wound 6×6 TLR made by Micro Precision Products, launched in 1958 and the last of MPP's medium-format cameras.

The Microflex has a pair of Taylor, Taylor & Hobson Micronar 77.5mm lenses; the taking lens is f/3.5, the viewing lens f/3.2. These had been designed by MPP, and they are therefore unique to the Microflex.

The lens elements were assembled and inspected by MPP. Optically, the Microflex is of excellent quality.

The shutter of the Microflex is a Prontor, but unlike that fitted to the Microcord II. The Prontor SVS shutter has speeds 1 – 1/300 sec., B, and delay.

The shutter speed and aperture wheels are linked, so that adjustment of the one adjusts the other for constant exposure value.

Production of the Microflex is thought to have continued until around 1960.

The Microflex has unusual requirements for film loading, carefully explained in MPP's instructions.

Simply, when the back is opened to remove an exposed film, the back should not be closed until a replacement film is loaded. However, if the back has been closed with no film, then when film is loaded it should be drawn into the take-up spool "manually" (the take-up spool not inserted but instead held in the hand).

Only when the start arrows on the backing paper match the two red dots in the camera body should the take-up spool be inserted. Throughout this, the winding crank must not be moved.
