Confusingly, it was first named Ikoflex III but this changed to Ikoflex II in 1939 when the Ikoflex III (853/16) was introduced.
It creates 6x6cm negatives (or slides) on 120 film.
The lensboard now has a shroud. Diaphragm and Shutterspeed can be seen in 2 small windows on the top of this shroud.
- Known Lens/Shutter combinations (prewar):
852/16 Kc : Triotar 3.5/7.5 cm lens in a Compur shutter
852/16 Lcr : Tessar 3.5/7.5 cm lens in a Compur-Rapid shutter
- Known Lens/Shutter combinations (postwar):
852/16 Lcr : Tessar 3.5/7.5 cm lens, coated, in a Compur-Rapid shutter
- Viewing lens: Teronar-Anigstigmat f/3.5
- Filter size : taking lens, 28.5mm push-on type
- Double-exposure prevention, because the film-advance knob must be wound on before firing. If the film counter went past frame 12, the shutter will also not fire.
- Blank film frame prevention.
