    Identifying older cameras

    Hi all--
    I just recently picked up a Zeiss Ikon Contaflex and I was hoping to find out more about it, when this model was produced, etc. Does anyone know of a good source of info for these cameras? Here are a couple of photos of it:

    Does it have the auto-exposure ("A") setting? If so, it's a Contaflex Super B, made between 1963 to 1968.

    Yes, it's definitely a Super B. I was just hoping there was a website that could help me narrow it down a bit more via serial numbers or whatever. It's a pretty cool camera and the lenses are very sharp...best of all, it was cheap!
