Zeiss Ikon Nettax 513/16

In 1954 Zeiss added an uncoupled selenium exposure meter to their 6 x 6cm Nettar folding camera and the Nettax was born. It was yet another re-use of an old name by Zeiss, and was not to be the last. The camera was fitted with a 75/4.5 Novar lens and a Pronto shutter. The camera was discontinued in 1959.

This camera should not be confused with the earlier Nettax, a 35mm camera.

The postwar Nettax 513/16.
