While my Pentax 645 has my first ever roll of Velvia 50 in it, it hasn't been getting much use recently as I've been using various square-format cameras. The shots below are from my second Zeiss Ikon, a 517/16, and taken on FP4+ and developed (as always) in Ilfosol 3. I'm very happy with how they turned out. The f/6.3 lens is very slow but seems to render really nicely and in sunny Spain, where I go by sunny-22, it's not going to be a big issue. The last shot was taken wide open BTW, I'm not sure about the others.

Lovely Nettar shots. I like the ones with the horses and especially the first one.

The Nettar is a great pocket 6x6. It actually easily goes into a coat pocket and ways next to nothing. I have the version with Novar - Anastigmat 4.5/75 lens, which is quite sharp in the center. For critical sharpnes I use a cotton string with marks applied to it. I have an idea for street portraits: Set the focus scale to a suiting distance, walk up to the subject and hand them one end of the string saying »would you hold this, please«, take a few quick paces backwards, while pointing the Nettar at the subject and when the string is tight, take the photo. Im sure you will get a surprised laugh. Have to try that out someday. I use a Gossen Sixtomat to meter. I have also used it for printed material on one architecture task covering a 18. century house listing, where the vintage expression was appropriate:

Zeiss Ikon Nettar, Novar - Anastigmat 75/4.5 PRONTO, Kodak 125 PX.

Thanks for the tip. I have wood working tools and I'm building a small-as-I-can, handhold 4x5 that will have preset focus distances for people pictures using a flip up FOV frame for composition. I figured I could guess the intended preset focus distances stopping the lens down to take care of distance errors but the string idea might come in handy. It is only in the drawing board phase but looks easy to build and I can salvage the film holder off my current 4x5 view camera.

Great idea, a handy 4X5 ‘automatic‘, perhaps (and with your craftman skills) you could make the camera an auto fire one, with a pin that gets pulled, when the distance is right? Regards

Tuco. Would the lens have single aperture setting?

Here are a few more from the same test roll of FP4+ in the Z.I.

If anyone can suggest what the "bubbling" at the top of the last shot is, I would much appreciate it. I've seen it in a couple of shots recently (from a different camera) and my best guess is bubbles in the developer, though none of the other shots on this roll seem to be affected at all.

Nope. It will be one of my Schneider lenses most likely the small 120mm I have. I'll just use a cable release for the shutter button.

I can't say I've ever seen anything like that before. But any additional info like it happing on the last frame which is the first frame on the development reel might be a clue.

Edit: They say to tap the development tank to release any air bubbles on the film prior to starting the agitation cycle. Perhaps that is what they look like.
