Zunow Zunowflex, 1960

Zunow Zunowflex 1960 profile

Black paint Zunowflex with very rare black Zunow 2.8/3.5cm no.10072 (UV filter, caps). Between 1958 and 1960 Zunow made about 500 Zunowflex cameras, it was a first camera ever to feature a fully automatic iris diaphragm - one year before Nikon introduced it in Nikon F, this example is probably one of the last cameras made as the company closed by 1960, and one of only two known in original black finish (some parts repainted), it was acquired by the previous owner with grey leather covering on back door (now all covered with black covering), the camera is in fully working condition, still the shutter is a very fragile mechanic construction.
