Zeiss Ikon Ikophot Rapid Light Meter

The Zeiss Ikon Ikophot Rapid is a handheld meter made in the 1950’s by Zeiss Ikon in Stuttgart, Germany.

It is a battery-less selenium cell reflective meter.
Selenium is an element that would generate voltage when streaked by light. This voltage is high enough to drive the meter needle or even operate a simple automatic exposure system.
The Ikophot Rapid uses a simple match needle system which means the selenium cell will drive the meter needle and the all the user need to do is to set the film speed (ASA/DIN) and move the flag needle (the one with a circle) to the meter needle’s position. The shutter speeds and apertures are then read from the meter dial.
Beside being an useful tool to measure light, the dial on the meter serves as a great tool in teaching relationships between film speed, shutter speed and aperture to beginners.

There is a calibration switch at the bottom of the meter but possibly because of sophisticated German craftsmanship, the meter is still highly accurate even without calibration.

The Zeiss Ikon Ikophot is in excellent working and cosmetic condition and working as good as it was made yesterday.
