Zeiss Ikon 515/2

Zeiss Ikon 515/2

This is my 1937 Zeiss Ikon 515/2, I have just put a roll of Ilford FP4 through it. Still working after 70 years !
I will upload two versions of the same from the Zeiss and one from the D200...interesting to see!
The scanned image from the Zeiss print is not even close to the qaulity of the original !

Thanks Jenny and Daenna...I thought this would be a fun comparison, the results were very interesting. It's got me wanting to do some more medium format work now!

Very subtle colors. Thought it was monochrome from the thumbnail. I think that suits the subject well. --Chris

i ma sooo jealous ! Zeiss is the best!

will you show us more of what you took with the roll of FP4?.. would love to see
p.s. did you have to have it serviced or were you lucky enough to receive it functional when you got it secon-hand?

Thanks Chris, Thank you Oly, I have uploaded another one for you. The camera has not been serviced, but it could do with a good clean, lube and adjustment. I just thought I would try it just as it was!
