Zeiss Ikon Ikoflex II

Traduction de Manuel M

This variant (Lcr) of Ikoflex is particularly well finished with its coating Art-Déco out of two-tone leather and chrome.
It is also remarkable by the quality of its equipments.
The Tessar lens and the Compur-Rapid shutter to the 1/500 were the best done at pre-war period.

The focusing is done by moving the lateral cursor along curved scale of distances. The lever made move from before to behind (and vice versa) the plate which supports the two lens. The lens of centring is a Téronar Anastigmat 7.5 cm. The focusing on the ground-glass can be refined by the use of the folding magnifying glass which is under the upper hood.
