REVIEW: Zeiss Ikon Nettar 517/2
Posted by Bengt Köhler Sandberg 30-08-2011
Recently bought me a Zeiss Ikon Nettar 6x9 camera.
It has a Novar-Anastigmat 105mm f:6,4 lens.
Settings you have shutter speeds 1/200, 1/75 1/25 sec and a B mode. Aperture you have f:6,3 to f:32
But how good is a lens from the mid 50īs?
This picture taken at f16 and when you use a smaller apoture this lens is extremly sharp. Unfortunately its not that good wide open where ist quite soft.
You can use this handheld but even at the fastest shutter you can quite easy lose alot of the sharpness so I recommend using a tripod.
These donīt have any focus aide so you can either guess the distance to the thing you whant in focus or use something else to measure with. I used a SLR with a 135mm lens on to read out the distance.
This is one of those cameras you can find for a extrem bargain price online or second hand stores.
I gave about 16 US-Dollar for mine
This is a camera that need some time to set up before you have your beautiful 6x9 picture.
I donīt see the benefits to this camera if you donīt have a tripod or canīt use a apeture of f11 or more.
Want to help me out?
