REVIEW: Zeiss Ikon Nettar 518/16
Posted by Bengt Köhler Sandberg 2013-09-10
Lens: Novar-Anastigmat 75mm f/4.5
Closest Focus: 1.2m (3.9ft)
Aperture: f/4.5 - f/22
10 bladed aperure
Shutter: 1/300 to 1s + B (Bulb)
Leaf shutter from Prontor-SV
Can also come with a Velio shutter which have speeds from 1/200 to 1/10 + B
Light meter: None
Flash: PC sync.
Takes 120 film
6×6 cm negative size.
Very simple and small but do the job.
All metal and solid as a rock.
Like all Zeiss Ikon folding cameras this do have very nice build quality and feel.
The Novar-Anastigmat lens is also a quite nice one.
Image quality is good and sharp but do have soft corners at bigger apertures.
It renders well with good contrast, bokeh.
Flare looks fairly well but I did get a little internal reflections from the aperture blades in direct sunlight.
Also work well in backlight.
Nice little camera and with great value for the money.
But a very simple one.
Good image quality / Feel
Great build quality
Portable and fairly lightweight
Corner sharpness at bigger aperture
