With its 6.5 x 11 cm format on 616 rollfilm, the Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta 530/15 is the biggest of this very successful brand of cameras.

Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta 530/15

Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta 530/15 Made from 1934 to 1939, the Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta 530/15 is the largest of the series. It is a larger format clone of the 530/2 model, making 6.5 x 11cm pictures on now discontinued 616 rollfilm.

It has most of the characteristics of the 530/2 model : release on the lens assembly, albada finder and folding coupled rangefinder. The lens is a 120 mm f/4.5 uncoated Tessar. The shutter, a Compur Rapid, gives speeds up to 1/500 s without flash sync.

With some work it can be used with 120 rollfilm but it is not very convenient.
