1950 - 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.
