Here are the shots from the first roll of film through my newly acquired Zeiss Ikon 524/2. For those not familiar with these, this is a 6x9 folder with an uncoupled rangefinder. Mine has the Novar lens, and judging by the negatives, it is quite an impressive performer.
The camera itself is in absolutely gorgeous condition, as is the never ready case. It is a little more ergonomic than the Moskva 5 (which has a coupled RF) and I suspect would be a little easier to handhold. It is also somewhat lighter, being the lightest of the three 6x9 folders I have.
I experimented with a couple of the shots by duotoning them. I'm not sure whether I like the original versions or the duotoned versions, so I'd appreciate your comments on which you prefer and why.
for the shots.
