This rare and hard to find Carl Zeiss Ikon Maximar model A 6.5cm x 9cm plate film folding camera is in excellent condition cosmetically, mechanically and optically. Body serial #1027849. Lens serial #1126525. Vintage folding plate camera. 6.5cm x 9cm format. Features a built in Carl Zeiss Jena 120mm f4.5 Tessar lens in a Zeiss Ikon Compur lens shutter. Desirable rare lens. Most Maximar cameras featured a lesser quality 135mm f4.5 or 105mm f6.3 lens. The 120mm f4.5 was the top of the line version with examples ever made. An extremely hard to find original outfit. A beautiful construction with built in viewfinder, spirit level and sports finder. Double extension bellows for extremely close 1:1 focus capability. This example was well taken care of and is in excellent condition overall.
