Chronology of cameras Zeiss Ikon 
History of the brand Zeiss Ikon New window

The Zeiss Ikon Nettel was made from 1929 (as the evolution of the Nettel Deckrullo) to 1937, and this particular model (870/7) was designed for glass plates and cut film holders of 9 x 12 cm.

The struts are the typical Nettel type, with automatic lock at infinity. The focusing is made by a knob above the shutter control on the right side of the camera, and scale in meters is located at the slot on the top of the camera. It has a direct vision frame and ground glass for accurate focusing.

The main difference for the previous Deckrullo model is the shutter design. The focal plane shutter is controlled by a single knob, and simpler to operate than previous versions of the Nettel camera. The combinations of spring tension and slit width are produced in a direct scale of exposure speeds. It delivers speeds from 1/3 to 1/2000 seconds and B and T. The objective is a Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar of 15 cm of focal length and maximum aperture of 4.5.
