Zeiss Ikon Contaflex IV

Zeiss Ikon Contaflex IV ~1957


135 SLR camera with interchangeable front elements; along with this Tessar 50mm 1:2.8, there is also the Pro-Tessar 4/35, 3.2/35, 4/85 and 4/115.


The shutter is a Synchro-Compur 1-1/500 and B; M and X synchro and self timer (V).


The light meter gives a reading by overlapping a small circle over the needle and transposing the resulting figure, the one in front of the red arrow, to the shutter speed controller, on the barrel of the lens. In doing this we have it "in Program mode" and can choose whatever shutter speed/aperture combo that best suits our needs.
