1950's Japan Zenobia Folding Bellow Camera. Hesper Anastigmat Lens 75mm f3.5 with D.O.C. Rapid shutter with speeds from B-500. Takes Medium Format 4.5x6cm Image on 120 Film. Marked Serial Number 58256.

Dai-Ichi Optical Works of Japan released Zenobia Medium Format camera in the early 1950's which were related clones of Zeiss Ikon Ikonta A and inherited from the Waltax.

Body Dimensions: Appx 3.5 Inch Tall x 5 Inch Wide x 4 Inch Opened Extended Depth (89x127x102mm).

Condition. In good condition, not tested with film. General test with shutter and release seems in working condition. All adjustment rings also appears operational. Viewfinder clear and clean. Appears in solid potential working condition. Plastic leatherette in several places are worn. Front lens cover has the most wear and missing some of the cosmetic cover. It is brittle and may need removal (again more cosmetic) or securing or glue down. Sides and back plastic is intact and secure. That is only a cosmetic flaw and not necessary for the function of the camera. The rest of the camera is intact without obvious damage or wear issues.

Believe it is picture ready however has not been test with film. May not need some additional cleaning and/or maintenence however should have minimal to moderate preparation to do so. Will leave it to those more knowledgeable to gauge if being purchased for taking pictures. **See Pictures

Beautifully designed camera is for both the vintage camera collector as well as for the active photographer or hobbyist. Zenobia medium format camera collectible and desired as an alternative to Zeiss Ikon Ikonta as it was intended back then. The history and information can be read on several websites:
