Hi there,

I'm researching American press photography between the World Wars, and I'm hoping to identify the camera models in these two photographs. Any ideas out there? They probably date from the mid-1930s-40s.

Top is a Leica (model?…possibly IIf introduced in 1933) with collapsible 50/2.8 Elmar (35mm). This lens was introduced in the 1950s. Bottom is a Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta B 530/16 (medium format, 120 film). Its production started in 1929. It had an Albada finder as an accessory on top of it.

Thank you so much! I would never know where to begin trying to figure this out. You have my heartfelt gratitude!
