The Zeiss Ikonta series of cameras started in the 1930s, there was a huge number of combinations of lenses, shutters and formats. The "A" series shot 4.5 x 6cm negatives, the "B" series 6 x 6cm and the "C"s 6 x 9cm. The "Super" Ikontas had rangefinders. I used a Super Ikonta A in week 42, that one belongs to my dad, this one came from a local camera shop's clearance sale and cost me £10.
