Contessa-Nettel Nettix

Jump to: navigation, search

The Contessa-Nettel Nettix is a strut folding plate camera in a leather coated metal body. Its size is almost comparable to that of a modern cigarette packet. Of course it is a little bigger when it's unfolded. It's a better version of Contessa-Nettel's Recto. Astounding: Hidden under its front panel are both, a big sports finder AND an additional reflecting type finder. It has even a focusing facility.
