Another two cameras that I really look forward to using more in 2015 are these two Zenobia 645 medium format folders. They were made from 1952 to 1957 by Daiichi Kogaku, later Zenobia Kogaku and shoot a negative of 6 x 4.5cm, giving 16 shots per roll of 120 film. They are Japanese clones of the German Zeiss Ikonta "A" folding cameras. Each one has a Neo-Hesper, 75mm F3.5 lens with speeds that range from 1 second to 1/500th and bulb mode. I picked up two because they were dirt cheap, in great condition and I could set one up with B&W film and one with color or one with 400 ISO B&W and one with 3200 ISO B&W film to have a street photography kit that would cover most lighting and subject situations. I added the accessory shoe rangefinder to the one on the left because these cameras are zone focus only and the rangefinder can accurately give me the feet distance to the subject to then focus the Zenobia's lens, an arrangement that sounds complicated but works surprisingly well in practice.
