Zeiss Ikon Box-Tengor 54/2

This is the Zeiss Ikon Box-Tengor which is one of the nicest box cameras I have used. Build quality is solid and thoughtful features, like the shutter lock, make this feel like a premium camera.

Everything on this camera works beautifully and taking pictures was real joy with forgiving Delta 100.

  1. I had two Box Tengors, with minor differences between them. They are definitely the ‘Cadillac’ of box cameras. Or at least the Buick. 😉
