    What are these Cameras???

    Found these at a local consinement, "antique" shop place.... Are they at all worth pursuing??

    Novar-Anastigmat w/ a zeiss ikon lens of some sort... Little, with bellows...

    Poloroid Land Cameras Model 150 and 800... Are these things good for anything anymore?? Is there still film for sale.

    Also, something called a Nishica 3D Camera, cheap black toy camera looking thing....

    I have the 3D camera, it was fun to play with, but very difficult to find someone to actually process the film now a days. If they are asking more than 4-6 dollars for it, I would pass it up, they are more of an oddity now a days than anything else.

    The Zeiss Ikon camera has a "Novar Anastigmat lens"

    There were various models taking 120 film, I have one that shoots 6 x 4.5cm the Novar lens is excellent & sharp. For over 25 years I processed & printed for a friends father who used a 6 x 6 model.

    Films easy to obtain so if in good condition potentialy its worth buying.

    I assumed it was the other way around.... It had Novar on the body and Zeiss on the lens...

    So, this is MF either 6x6 or 6x4.5? Hmm, may be fun... Does anyone have any pics of one, so I can be sure??

    Try:

    http://www.certo6.com/

    Open the back, and you can tell the format. You might also try searches (even in ebay) for Zeiss Ikonta.

    Good luck.
