The Ikoflex (850/16) is a TLR camera that was made by Zeiss Ikon from 1934 till 1937.
Because of its shape it got the nickname "Coffee can".

Confusingly, the Ikoflex II (851/16) was renamed Ikoflex I (850/16) in 1939.[1].

It creates 6x6cm negatives (or slides) on 120 film. Interestingly, as not that common with MF TLR's, the film transport runs horizontally.
