The Ikoflex is the only true Twin Lens Reflex (TLR) made by Zeiss Ikon — the WWII Tengoflex is actually just a box-camera with a large, simple brilliant finder which does not aid focussing and is therefore considered to be a pseudo-TLR.

5 Frames… Of Dundee on Fomapan 100 Classic and a Zeiss Ikon Contina LK (35mm / EI 100)
The woman with the mobile phone must think I’m creepy. Or possibly daft. Perhaps both. She is sat on a bench in the sunshine, having a chat with a friend, and I am stalking around the arches of the building with a camera as old as I am. Precisely, as old as I am, in […]
5 Frames… On a panoramic-mod Zeiss Ikonta 521/16 and Rollei Retro 400S (EI 4200 / 120 Format)

5 Frames… With Kodak Portra 400 (EI 400 / 120 format / Zeiss Ikon Nettar 517/16)
The Munda Bidi Trail is a wonderful thousand-kilometre dirt bicycle ride between Perth and Albany in Western Australia.
I started down the Albany at the south-west tip of Australia and spent nine days meandering north.
5 Frames… With Rollei CR200 (EI 200 / 35mm / XPRO / Zeiss Ikon ZM)
This film has very few of the attributes we generally associate with color reversal films, namely: fine grain and beautifully balanced vibrant colors.
Recensione: vi racconto le mie folding – Zeiss Ikon Ikonta 520/2 & Zeiss Ikon Nettar 515/2
Il panorama della fotografia analogica è ricchissimo di fotocamere e attrezzature prodotte negli ultimi secoli da centinaia di produttori diversi, e questo ci aiuta a capire la bellezza e lo stato di evoluzione che questa Arte (la Fotografia) è riuscita
