Jeffrey & I were super excited to try this one out, because I think it might be the oldest camera that we own now. We had no idea if it would even work! The good news is... it worked beautifully! And produced some really neat pictures with interesting textures and tones.
Unfortunately with 120mm film, you only get 8 frames and the cost of film and development can be more expensive than 35mm film. The benefit of medium format film is that you can produce larger enlargements with less grain.
However, since we rarely print or enlarge our photos (at least for now), the Ikon Nettar won't make it's way into our regular camera rotation, but I would definitely like to try it again now that I know what it can do, and pull it out for special occasions or specific shots. I'd also like to see what it can do with colour film.
