It’s a dual window. Surprisingly, no light leaks with that method.

There were millions of red window cameras built and used in bright sun over a period of a century or more. Light leaks from the red window are usually only an issue if the camera is damaged in some way.

Beauty! Just had a look at several on the auction site.... not cheap!

It was as-is from Roberts but really all that it needed was a shutter cleaning. I shot it as it was with only the faster speeds before I sent it to Jurgen. I think it was less than $100. Shutter CLA wasn’t that much.

Shutter only on a Compur or similar isn't usually a big job as long as it actually works. The hardest part is getting the RF resynchronized after putting the front group back.

Mine is a Zeiss Super Ikonta 530. Jurgen Kreckel CLA’d it recently. The lens is a Tessar and it pretty sharp for a 1930’s camera.



Here it is next to a Mamiya c33. It’s tiny.


A few from the Zeiss 530 ( Lomo 400 overcast day )

I regularly shoot folders; from 6x4.5 to 4x5". from 1910-ish to 1950-ish

Most recently I used a Franka Solida III on holiday in France. Still processing those images.

Nice. I've got two Vest Pockets (both the Autographic version, one with meniscus and one with Periskop type lens). They do pretty well for what they are, and (aside from bellows leaks in the meniscus one) work amazingly well for being over a century old.

I've been using this gem of a Voigtlander Perkeo ll. The Color-Skopar is a great lens.
Even sold my Plaubel Makina 670 !
