* 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.
Just got my Ikoflex today! it is version IIa later.
The TLR comes with two cute and precious items:
Ikoblitz LD and Ikoflex.
I have no idea of how this ikoblitz works… below are some info.

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.
