    Default 1933 zeiss ikonta 520 16

    Ok, I will be picking up this puppy tomorrow sometime in the afternoon, it is a fabulous camera, I have used on slightly different year and model and loved it. Anyone in Montreal or Southern Ontario recommend a good antique camera place. This one is fairly mint and I want to see about giving it a once over and I am looking for a Manual or a place where someone can help me.

    I have also decided to refurbish my 1934 Brownie, had a good look over and could use a bit a loving but I have the original manual and service guide for it.With the Zeiss I have found nothing on it in the way of Manuals except through the States and I would like to find a good vintage photography shop somewhere between Montreal to Windsor and as far North as Sudbury.

    I am considering 1895-1910 Large format Camera, though I want a glass plate camera I need to do some research before I go that way and I have not used a glass plate camera in over 25 years, I hope in two to three years I can the the other two I want. Also on the look out for a Rolleiflex Type 2, so 1945 and earlier incase anyone stumbles up one, feel free to let me know. That is what I am looking for next.

    I will post a photo of it so you can see just the awesome beauty of this camera. And a dark room is looking less and less like an option, think it is getting the need more lol ...

    I found this very interesting site for the rolleicords:

    Thought it might be of interest to the cameraphiles out there.

    Is one of these similar enough to yours? What film does it shoot? It sounds like you have a nice camera coming to you. Congratulations. Kurt

    Thanks for the links. The Zeiss when I got it home yesterday could not believe how stunningly mint it it is, looks like it has rarely been used. Outside the original case straps broke but the case is in still prime condition and I can fix it easily. When I wake up more later I will post a photo.

    Well in the next 3 or 4 weeks we will find out. Film is very easy to get for it. I am just reading the manual now and I would prefer to develop them my self but for the first couple of rolls I may get someone to do it, it will kill me but if I have to I will or I may just rent a dark room. So I hope within 6 weeks I will have a few photos to post from it. I will take the negatives and get them scanned to a disk or usb drive. I am looking around and seeing if I can just rent a darkroom where I have a lot of access until I have the time to get one going and then getting all the equipment I need. Chemicals, trays and film are easy, I am only doing B&W so it is an easy darkroom to set up.
