Here we have a very beautiful Zeiss Ikon Contaflex I (2nd generation model) with original take up spool and attachable accessory shoe. This camera is in excellent condition, is fully functional, and is ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.
The lens is in perfect condition. Glass is clean, suffering no fungus, rubbing marks, cleaning marks, scratches, or damage. The aperture blades actuate smoothly and show no signs of damage or helicoid oil seepage. The shutter works perfectly at all speeds, and is accurate. The reflex mirror actuates as it should. The viewfinder is clean and clear and the focusing mechanism works perfectly.
Cosmetically it is gorgeous.
The Zeiss Ikon Contaflex I was introduced in 1953 and is one of the first successful SLR cameras to feature a leaf shutter. This allows the camera to be incredibly small, and provides flash synchronization at any shutter speed.
The lens is an ultra compact Zeiss Tessar 45mm F/2.8 lens capable of making very sharp images. The standard focal length of 45mm makes it a perfect camera for travel, street photography, general use, snapshots, and landscape shooting.
The viewfinder features a split-image focusing circle in the center of the frame, making it very easy to focus.
This beautiful camera will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
