MAXIMAR 207 Ica Dresden - the first camera of my father. He photographered by this camera after the WW-2. It was additional job in summer time when he had holidays in your teaching in the university...
Is a Zeiss Ikon Maximar 207/3 (also known as a Maximar A).
The camera was originally designed to use 6 ½ cm x 9 cm (2 ¼” x 3 ¼”) negative plates (probably glass).
These types of cameras were common during the late 19C and early 20C, through the 1930s, at least.
So, you live in the same house with history...
wow!!! what a great relic of the past – what a beautiful dinosaur!! i stand in awe of it! and of your father operating it ; )). i just love the look of that "concertina-like" part of it – sorry, ignorant me doesn't even know the correct name for it! thank you so much for allowing us a glimpse of your precious family treasure! greetings, sabine.
wow...was für ein Teil. War sicherlich damals das non plus ultra was heute die Spiegelreflex ist. Habe auch noch solch eine alte aber nicht solch eine schöne Kamera zu hause. Hatte mir extra noch einen Film dazu organiesiert, war aber nicht so einfach damit zu fotografiern. Halte so ein Teil in Ehren den so etwas bekommt man nicht so leicht wieder. Einfach S U P E R !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wie schön, dass Du diese Kamera noch hast! / Wonderful that you still have this camera!
Und sehr schon fotografiert! / And you have photographed it beautifully!
Gratuliere zu diesem Foto. / Congratulations for this image.
LG / Regards
Oh, this is a ICA Maximar 207 Camera, very old and made in Germany/Dresden, Beginning of the last century. I collected old Cameras ago more than 20 Years. In my collection was a Ica Maximar 107.
These cameras, which are now relics of the past, have a special charm.
How and how much has changed cameras and technology, since then !!!!!
Excellent photography, as a tribute to the past. Congratulations.
A hug. Rosa
I've still the AGFA SYNCHRO BOX from my father, which was my first one... And I bought an IBSOR (D.R.P.) with Ihagee lens, both made around 1900 ... in a small antique shop in Whitby, Great Britain .... the IBSOR nearly looks the same as yours here, because the principle is the same one ;-)
what a beautiful old veteran! and a great artifactd to remember your dad by! captured on the keyboard of a modern computer it makes a great addition to the monthly theme "now and then"! greetings, sabine.
