The Miroflex is a strut folding single lens reflex camera, made by Zeiss Ikon from 1929-1936. The camera has a two-curtain focal-plane shutter with speeds from 1/3 sec. to 1/2000 sec. It was made in two sizes, one for 6.5×9cm plates, the other for 9×12cm plates. As well as reflex viewing the viewing hood could be folded down, the wire finder and rear sight raised for use as a press camera. The front standard could be moved sideways and gave rising and falling movements when the camera was vertical.
