German-made Zeiss Ikon ‘Taxo -64’ is a folding camera from the 1930s. With its 9x13 cm format, Zeiss Novar 6.3/135 lens and Derval 1/100 shutter, the treasured camera is a collector’s delight.
Carl Zeiss AG, branded as ZEISS, is a German optical systems and optoelectronics manufacturer, founded in Jena, Germany, in 1846. Carl Zeiss, along with Ernst Abbe and Otto Schott, laid the foundation for today's multi-national company. Zeiss Ikon is a camera brand related to Carl Zeiss, but was an independent company formed by the merger of four camera makers - Contessa-Nettel, Ernemann, Goerz and Ica - in 1926.
The size of the camera when open is 4.25 x 7.5 x 7.25 inches. When closed, the dimensions are 4.25 x 2 x 7.25 inches.
