Carl Zeiss AG Announces Its Ikon SW Camera

Zeiss Ikon SW Camera

Germany’s Carl Zeiss has debuted its Ikon SW precision camera for superwide photography. No, it’s not a digital camera but it offers state-of-the-art high technology just as well. It’s a film camera with a speed range of ISO 25-3200 manually set in 1/3 f-stop increments.

The company says, “The Zeiss Ikon SW offers the same extremely high image quality as the known Zeiss Ikon rangefinder camera: far above today’s digital cameras. It is fully integrated into the Zeiss Ikon system. The Zeiss Ikon SW comes without the complex rangefinder and is therefore considerably more affordable than the rangefinder camera.”

Its lens mount takes any lens with M bayonet, in particular the ZEISS high performance superwide-angle lenses Distagon T* 2,8/15mm ZM and the Biogon T* types from the ZEISS ZM range.

The Carl Zeiss Ikon SW will be available in October and will be priced at about $1020 (€799).
