  2. Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta 531 on Flickr.

    This is a beautiful Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonda 531 from 1937. It has a coupled rangefinder, a nice Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar 75mm f3.5 (Uncoated) which I took apart and cleaned all the haze out, and it’s a 6x4.5 to boot.

    Folded up, it’s about 1.5” thick — which is absolutely perfect for a compact, fully capable medium format camera.

    This truly is an amazing bit of work by Zeiss. Instantly one of my favorites; as i’ve always wanted to try one but without paying so much.

    Testing my new-to-me, just cleaned lens Zeiss Ikon, Super Ikonta 531! This one has a Carl Zeiss Jena 75mm f3.5 Tessar that I took apart and cleaned all the haze out of, looks very sharp to me. The Super Ikonta is a 6x4.5 Medium format rangefinder folder that is super compact and very unique. This may be the medium format camera for me. This shot, wide open, taken on my not-so-favorite Ilford HP5+ and Rodinal + a pinch of salt.
