- 55 Zeiss Ikon Contessa is a full framed 35mm folding camera with a
non interchangeable Tessar f2.8 / 45mm lens in a Synchro-Compur
shutter which makes this a later version (1953 to 55). Similar in size
and shape to a Kodak Retina II, it is a well made camera designed for
the medium priced 35mm market. The Contessa features both a rangefinder
and a dual range uncoupled exposure meter.
