Zeiss Ikon Ikonta C 521/2

Ikonta series of Zeiss Ikonta folding medium format cameras were made from around 1933 until 1960. They came in one of 3 formats - 6 x 4.5 cm, 6 x 6 cm and 6 x 9 cm, all using 120 size film. A number (3 digits I.e. 521/2, can be used to identify the name and age of the camera. The Zeiss Historia Society ) details the history of the company and its many products.

Since 120 film is widely available, the Ikonta and sister Nettar cameras are still very usable. The post war units with coated optics produce high quality medium format images.
