Week 338 - Zeiss Ikon Tenax II
This camera belonged to my late father, it is one of the more sophisticated 35mm Zeiss cameras, and was first made in the late 1930s. Unusually for a 35mm camera, it takes sqaure negatives, menaing that you get more then 50 exposures from a standard 36 exposure roll. The f2 40mm Sonar lens has a coupled rangefinder, and the Compur shutter gives a full range of speeds.
I loaded it with ISO 200 Fomapan black and white film.
