Zeiss Ikon Contina IIa

Traduction de Manuel M

Here what the “advertizing agents” Zeiss Ikon said in 1956:

“In addition to the built-in exposure meter, the Contina is equipped with the fast cocking, so practical; a short impulse on the lever ensures the drive of film and the cocking of the shutter with integral synchronization, with automatic release.
This camera of small format, planned for the rapid taking of clichés, include obviously one coupled meter and a protection against the double exposure.
The lens remains constantly in position “taken of clichés”; it is luminous and gives itself remarkably well with the coulour clichés”

Proposed in 1956:

527/24 Fpms Novar 1:3,5 F: 4.5 cm. shutter Prontor SVS
527/24 Vpms Novicar 1:2,8 F: 4.5 cm. shutter Prontor SVS

Could be proposed to supplement the camera:
An opening bag
Treated screen of precision
Treated lenses Zeiss Proxar for closer clichés up to 16 cm.
Flexible release with blocking
Leather case for lenshood
Flash-torch Ikoblitz 0

Here, the version with Novicar lens.
