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

Following the Series 530 Super Ikonta A (rangefinder, 4.5 x 6 cm) the Series 531 was released with several improvements.

The example shown here, of the series made from 1937 to 1950, has a shutter release with double-exposure protection on the case near the film-advance knob.

The lens is, as previously, the Carl Zeiss Jena 75mm F3.5 Tessar.

The shutter, a Compur Rapid with speeds from 1 to 1/500 second plus B, has no flash coupling.
