4 new shots with my old Nettar

Hi all, I post here some shots I made two weeks ago with my Zeiss Ikon Nettar IIb from 1949: the lens is a Novar Anastigmat, and the film is Ilford FP4 125 iso (scan by ePSON v500).
I hope you'll enjoy them

Good pictures. Remind me of the days when I ran FP4 through a Rolleicord.

Welcome to the Nettar world, Direwolf !!
This little and simple camera is a joy to use, very quite and able to give great images. Of course you must guesstimate a lot of things, but it's part of the game, I'm sure you'll enjoy it

I have an Ikonta with the Novar. I don't think it takes pictures like the ones posted.


Don't mind me, it's probably the photographer.

Beautiful! the last color picture (boats) is wonderful.

I have a Nettar that may be similar to yours. They are very light and convenient once you get used to guessing distances. The Novar lens is much better than you would guess, especially below f/5.6

How do you distinguish the different Netar models besides taking note of the lens and shutter type?

I found in Internet a data-sheet with all the Nettar models divided by name and year of production, based on the shutter and lens type. From that sheet I know that my camera was produced in 1949, and is called Nettar IIb or "Signal" Nettar from the sistem used to avoid the double exposures. Every camera model is identified also by a number on the body.

In addition to lens and shutter differences, the bodies in all three series, 645, 66, 6X9 varied. These variations included viewfinder (collapsible frame and optical) and provisions for
reducing unintentional double exposures and blank shots (none and different types).

The bodies models are known by three digit number and a single or double digit number signifying format.

How are you able to post the pictures so big? What scanner are you using and are you using any special film holder to get the film flatter on the scanner bed?

Beautiful images, like Robin, my favorite is the last B&W one, just delicious details and MF goodness.

I have a similar triplet lens, the Agnar, it also produces lower contrast, but full of details pictures.

I use an Epson v500 scanner with the standard 6x6 holder, and standard software, but the first two colour photos are made with my old scanner, an Epson 3170, that I changed a few months ago ( problems with the sensor ).

I usually scan images in tif, then convert them in jpeg for the web: the more you compress, the bigger the photo can be ...

It's an idroelectric power unit, buit in the first year of 1900: it is still in use, and produce 10.5 MW. The strange style of the building is due to the will to have a low impact on the landscape (there is also an old castle on the hill on the back of the central). The outside of the walls are covered with rocks from the river, just to have a "less strong" look: it's great a lesson for contemporary architects, I think...

Glad I waited to see these photos at home rather than at work on the lcd monitor. They are really nice. I think I prefer the last of both series, but they all look better on a crt than the lcd at work.

I have a Zeiss Ikon 6x9 with a Novar lens, that I like. It gives a really big negative when you want that, and is is very thin and light to carry.
