    Zeiss Ikon Nettar

    I bought this really old German Zeiss Camera on Ebay for only 25 Euros. It was built about 70 or 80 years ago in Stuttgart/Germany, and it still works perfectly! Read more about it and see some sample photos after the jump.

    Orwochrom UT18 (35mm, 50 iso) User-Review

    Anyone who knows me, knows I love strange film - the older and stranger the better! And this one is definitely strange: Expired in May 1992, this East German slide film was made to be developed in ORWO process 9165, chemicals which have long since been discontinued.

    Pretty Green: Carl Zeiss Werra 1

    Since I first saw the Carl Zeiss Werra 1, I really got into this nice small camera. It still delivers a decent quality and offers a few details you will not find every day...

    Shanghai GP3 (120, 100 iso) User-Review

    When googled, a few things immediately jump out: It's listed in the "worst film + developer archive" and you come across quotes like "For sure it is amazing, that such a cheap product gives negatives with a picture on it. I still would not bother to waste my time with it." (Georg Kern on photo.net) - this is definitely a film some people love to hate!

    See the World Through The Contax T2

    The Contax T2 is a camera that has made a name for itself by producing stunningly sharp images with brilliant and crisp color. Is it really worth all of the hype though? I think so.

    The  Zeiss Ikon Nettar II's Foldable Foibles

    I am such an idiot with this camera, it's quite embarrassing! No matter how hard I try, I always seem to be aiming too high or too low. Sometimes the pictures turn out nice in spite of me, but this is still not my favourite camera.
