* Filters and Lens Shades: The Ikoflex Cameras, with the exception of the “coffee can” use 35.5mm screw in or 37mm push on filters and/or adapter rings over the taking lens. The viewing lens takes either a Zeiss S27 (27mm screw in) or 28.5mm push on filter. Original Zeiss Filters and shades are extremely hard to find these days.

Ikophot Exposure Meter – Made by Zeiss Ikon

Most of the TLRs do not come with built-in meter.

For TLRs come with built-in meter, most of these may not fully functional due the its age, or some functional but may not be accurate.

In these cases, a good exposure is very useful.

Managed to got a e-copy of Zeiss Ikon Ikophot exposure meter instructional manual, free download here.
