The Contaflex II was introduced by Zeiss Ikon AG, Stuttgart, Germany in 1954 and discontinued in 1957. It was the same camera as the Contaflex I with an uncoupled needle readout selenium meter added to one side of the front plate. The Contaflex I and II have fixed Zeiss Tessar 45mm f2.8 with front-cell focusing lenses and a Synchro-Compur shutter with 1-2-4-8-15-30-60-125-250-500 plus B shutter speeds. It is possible to add a 1.7x supplementary lens (called the Teleskop 1.7x) using an adapter mount (861/07). The adapter mount slides on to the camera body below the lens and locks into place using a pair of hinged lugs. The Teleskop 1.7x lens screws on to the adapter mount and also locks into place. The lens-to-subject focus distance remains almost the same as the use of the Teleskop 1.7x and effectively increases subject magnification. Note that the adapter mount cannot be attached if a filter is fitted to the fixed lens. The camera uses 35mm film and is a viewfinder SLR, geared mirror camera with apertures of 2.8 to 22. The filter size is 27mm and the lens uses threaded only. The camera also has a PC sync connection, rewind knob on the top plus release button on the bottom, focus range from 3 foot to infinity, frame counter, ΒΌ inch 20 thread tripod socket, and it weighs 25.4oz (720.1g). To access the film compartment you remove the one piece bottom and back. Provided are two-fold downturn levers that work in opposing directions. You now can pull the back assembly down from the top of the camera exposing the film compartment. The camera pictured here is in poor working condition but Fine esthetic condition.
