Until WWII Zeiss Ikon was the world’s market leading maker of 8mm movie cameras. Postwar production began early in May 1945. But it was interrupted because several factories were closed for dismantling their production machines. This item is listed as a clean circa 1951-55 Zeiss Ikonta 524/16 (folding roll film) camera for 6x6cm exposures on 120 film. The lens is a Novar Anastimant 75mm F4.5 which is clean. The shutter is the Pronto-SV. The camera is clean and everything seems to be in working order although it has not been tested. Comes with brown leather case however the top part of the case is not intact. Original strap not included. Looking through the viewfinder, everything looks clear. Hopefully the roll hasn’t been exposed. Please see photos for an up close look at this amazing vintage camera that I’m sure has many stories to tell.
