Nettar 515 (2 1/4 x 1 3/4)

Hi all,

I've been given a folding camera, (pretty much the same as the image below) despite trawling google, still don't know an awful lot about.



Front of the lens says, "Nettar Anastigmat 1:4,5 F=7,5cm. (What does the F=7.5cm mean) It looks to be in excellent condition, hardly a mark on it and has a case and manual. Serial number is J20526. The shutter says Zeiss Ikon Klio.

When the film cover is opened I can see that the film required is 6x9 B2. A bit of research reveals that 120 film can be used, is that any 120 film or should I be looking for something specific?

What's the focal length of this lens?

Thanks very much for any assistance.

Kind regards,

Ian

Hi Ian

I think the 7.5cm refers to the focal length - 75mm. That would be a standard lens on a large format camera.

120 film is 120 film. It is all the same size and length. You usually get 12 exposures to a roll. If you go for black and white negative film you will be able to process it yourself if you get a universal developing tank - that is one that will take all film sizes by changing spacers on the central spine to change the distance between the spirals that hold the film.

If you decide to get some colour print film you will have to find a lab that can process it

Peak Imaging and others will be able to do this.

Nettar 515 gives 16 exposures on 120 film. As Graham said any 120 film will work. With 515 having a maximum shutter speed of 1/125 I would suggest an ASA 100 (200 Max) film. If you go higher get a couple of ND filters so you can shoot in normal daylight using an adequate range of f stops.

My pleasure.

Your camera happens to be the first cousin of my Duo Six-20. The major difference being my shutter is a compur-rapid with a max speed of 1/500 but minimum aperture of f-22.
