Roll 290. Zeiss Ikonta 521

Over a couple of days I had my Zeiss Ikonta 521 in the coat pocket during the walks with the junior assistant.

It is very compact, especially for a medium format camera. Even if it takes 120 film it can compete with ordinary 135 film compacts when it comes to size.

Mine has some rather unremarkable uncoated glass, when having the light source behind me it can give pretty acceptable results, as above. But when pointed into the light it flares significantly, look at the lower right corner of the image below. The reflected sun in the puddle adds a white fog to the whole section of the photograph.
