Anyone looking for a World War II German gun camera?
Here’s something for all you military history fans and vintage camera collectors out there. Another rare camera with rich military history has surfaced from the depths of ebay: a Zeiss Ikon German Luftwaffe Me 109 gun camera from the World War II era.
There’s not much information about this fascinating wartime snapper, other than what we find in the listing by ebay seller adtpcs. This Zeiss Ikon gun camera, an ESK 2000 B model, measures 18.5 inches long, weights approximately 15 pounds, and has an integrated sight tube with cross-hair reticle. It was reportedly attached to the Messerschmitt ME 109 (BF 109) aircraft, which was the backbone of the German air force Luftwaffe during the World War II.
