Zeiss Ikon Simplex-Ernoflex and Simplex-Ernoflex Stereo

The Simplex Ernoflex was a carryover from Ernemann. Available in 4.5 X 6cm as the 853, 6.5 X 9cm as the 853/3 and the 9 x 12cm as the 853/7, plus the 615/1 stereo version, these were rigid body SLR cameras with helical focusing lenses. Lense included Ernoplast, Ernon or Tessar.

It appears these were dropped from the catalog sometime in the 1930's.
