Hrm Pocketible camera... But Medium Format

I picked up a new body, it caught my eye when I seen how small the camera was, but also finding out that it shoots off a standard roll of medium format 120. Basically Greg at the camera center (camercenter.net I think their site is finally back up now, its due for a redesign which I'll be doing) ended up giving me this little guy out of consideration for the help and consultation I have given so far. He can be a very generous guy. Seems like the week after next, I'll be employed there for two days aweek, probally mostly website redesign and updates at first, and then maybe help around the shop when I can, I don't know the details of the plan just yet.

But anyways by big I mean that its a medium format shooter, however the camera's body is anything but large. Measuring at approximatly 4.5 inches high, 3 inches wide, and 1.5 inches deep (when closed, when opened up just under 4 inches deep) its capable of shooting medium format 6x4.5 frames yet able to fit into my pocket.

Zeiss Ikon Nettar 515
Nettar-Anastigmat 75mm f/4.5 Lens (4.5 -> 32)
Klio Shutter B,T, 1 to 1/175
Made around 1937

It uses the 6x9 frame counter, by having two ruby windows, when #1
shows up on the bottom window you shoot the first frame, wind until #1
shows in second, then shoot, and repeat with the rest. Basically a
half-frame 6x9 shooter, rather than just going off the 6x4.5 number.

I used a roll of 35mm and 120 to give you guys a reference of size.





And I thought the Kodak Junior 6x9 folding camera was portible...

Very cool. When Karen and I were home on vacation I came across something like that at an antique store, an old 1918 Kodak vest pocket camera. It's missing the magnifying glass in the viewfinder so I can't really see what it's looking at, but everything seems to be working. Old cameras can still take some great shots!

Bellows seem decent, I assume its one of those Bulb / I shutters where its a fixed shutter and aperture, that you'd generally use outdoors?

Indeed...four apertures on a rotating dial. I or T shutters--bulb and what looks like around 1/60.

More likely 1/50 , but who is to quibble over that tiny ammount of difference.
