Zeiss Ikon Nettar Anastigmat

By johnriley1uk  
I used to collect old cameras and although I don't really have any left these days, not that are worth recording anyway, when I do come across something I can never resist making yet another shot of the camera, or maybe as here just a detail. The engineering is just fascinating.

Very good to see, John, Iím passing my collection of old cameras slowly on to grandchildren, Zeiss are always very photogenic. Was sorting out a Super Ikonta iii for my grandson last week. Their engineering was so perfectionist, love it 😍

Oh how times have changed!! Its still great to see the old cameras.
My first camera ever was a Zeiss Ikon 35 mm. Used it for everything... taking photos through a microscope, a telescope and particularly love to use film intended to take welding seam shots... Blacks were black and white was very stark.
This is a nice shot of a very well make and well know camera!

Camera details never fail to be interesting, the older the better. If only they made digital twin-lens reflex cameras it would encourage more square format thinking.

Back in the time of very basic controls, but photographers still managed to produce super images. Possibly because you had to set all the controls by hand, before clicking, you spent more time on producing the picture, and seeing that everything was right.
