The Zeiss Ikon Super Nettel is a 35mm rangefinder camera that was available in the mid-1930s.

The Zeiss Ikon Super Nettel arrived two years after the Contax, which was the camera maker's response to the popularity of the Leica.

The Super Nettel shared many features and hardware with the Contax. It is a camera that is still available today, although you should always expect a camera from that time period to require service.

This folding camera is no lightweight, using plenty of steel and brass in its construction.

It has a coupled rangefinder but uses two eyepieces - one for focusing and a second one for composing your photograph.

The camera is nameed after one of Zeiss Ikon's predecessor companies – Contessa-Nettel – that merged in the 1920s to form Zeiss Ikon. And like many Contessa-Nettel camera, this Super Nettel also used scissor struts to position the lens.
