1936 Zeiss-Ikon Nettar

The Zeiss-Ikon Nettar was a friendly medium format 6x9 camera that was produced in Germany from 1933 to 1951. The early versions were especially endearing and were nearly identical to the 6x9 Ikonta. It’s notable that even though these early Nettars were somewhat budget oriented, Zeiss-Ikon still gave buyers the option of ordering them with very high quality lenses. This is one of those cameras, it’s a fitted with a 4.5/105mm Carl Zeiss Tessar lens mounted in a Compur shutter. This is the same lens used on the Ikonta and Super Ikonta models.

This photo was produced with a 1936 Nettar fitted with the high-end 105mm Tessar lens which we’ve serviced and sold. The owner hails from the United Kingdom and he was kind enough to share his photo with us.
