Zeiss Ikomat

Zeiss Ikomat

The Zeiss Ikon Ikomat 515/2 was manufactured in Germany from around 1933-1938. This superior specimen of a camera was gifted to me by my neighbor in the spring of 2020, just as I was feeling creatively stifled by the first wave of Covid-19 pandemic-related closures and forced lifestyle changes. Though slightly larger and heavier, the Ziess is an answer to the Kodak Six-20 "pocket" folding camera, and can shoot both Kodak 620 and the more universal (and still manufactured) 120 size film spools. The bellows and back of this camera are light-tight, the shutter works at all speeds, and the glass is crystal clear. The Zeiss model also includes a shutter release cable integrated into the cover for easy storage and accessibility. The camera produces 2.25"x3.25" negatives (or roughly 6cmx9cm) which are excellent for scanning and making large prints.
