These little folding cameras were made from the late 1930's and well into the 1950's. The smallest medium format cameras you can get and easily pocketable, they yield sixteen 6 x 4.5 images. For some reason I didn't get that many on this roll but oh well, next time...the nice thing is that the lenses are very sharp, the bellows are almost always still light tight, they are plentiful, fairly priced for what they are, easy to do doubles and usually the shutters are still fine too. .Taken by clickiemcpete with a Zeiss Ikonta 521 6x4.5 with Tessar loaded with Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 (120) film in Greenfield, MA, United States. This photo can also be found in the album Zeiss Ikonta 521: Redscales.
