Chronology of cameras Zeiss Ikon 
History of the brand Zeiss Ikon New window

Traduction de Manuel M

The Contaflex took the name of “Contaflex I” only when the launch of II was envisaged. One often meets this phenomenon among the manufacturers of cameras.
It was very innovating with its prism in roof. The first version is still deprived of any electronics. There is no integrated cell.
This camera will be at the origin of a great lineage.
Its general aspect is with the basis of that of the cameras of today, including digital reflex cameras.
