Zeiss Ikon Contina IA with the original leather case!
During WWII Hubert Nerwin of Zeiss Ikon began planning for a new 35mm folder. His concepts were developed after the war to become Zeiss's first completely new postwar product. This series soon carried the name Contina.
This solid and well-made camera was manufactured from 1954-1958. It is fitted with a Plantar 45mm 1:2.8 lens in a Prontor SVS shutter.
The Contina Ia is a rigid-bodied 35mm viewfinder camera, and the simplest of the Contina range, which were all popular cameras.
It was the successor to the earlier Contina I, a folding camera, itself previously named the Ikonta 35.
