Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta A 531

Released 1937

This wonderful camera is one of the oldest in my collection, and yet I bought it specifically to use, not to look at. I wanted a medium format travel camera, because my medium format SLRs are too heavy to cycle with comfortably. This Super Ikonta folds up to a size barely larger than a modern digital compact, yet still produces 6×4.5cm negatives.

This camera was in quite bad condition when I bought it, but I had it restored. I wrote some notes about the Super Ikonta.

See all photos taken with the Super Ikonta A 531.
