Meet My Zeiss Baby Ikonta (520/18)

This is one of my newest babies, it was given to me by my brother, and I think it’s one of my oldest. It’s a Zeiss Baby Ikonta, model number 520/18 (which is actually important because there are many, many Zeiss Ikonta models.) It was manufactured from 1932-1936 (which makes it 2nd to my 1913 Voigtlander). I decided not to ask my brother how much he paid for it, since it’s in mint condition and the shutter still works…. and I want to keep it… because I think if I let him tell me how much it was, I would have probably told him to take it back. But I did not, so crisis averted yay! This baby takes 127 film, but I’m going to respool some 35mm to test it out.

(and if you want to recommend me for Tumblr Tuesday, that would be awesome)
