Zeiss Ikon Nettar 515/16 (Post War)

Today the mailman delivered unto me the newest member of my vintage camera collection, a Zeiss Ikon Nettar 515/16 medium format film camera. The Zeiss Ikon Nettar was originally released in 1937, however, the model I have is a post-war model. probably manufactured around 1947.

It shoots 6x6cm exposures on 120 medium format film (8 exposures per roll) and features a 75mm f/4.5 lens.

It is a strut folding camera, the lens pops out of the camera with the push of a button and can be folded back in. It features a rudimentary view finder and the camera can only be focused by judging your distance from your subject and adjusting the focus ring accordingly. There is no way to visually confirm the focus.

It's in amazingly good shape given it's age. In fact, it looks like it's never been used!

Cool beans! Can't wait to try it out. Stay tuned for the images.
