Nettel Deckrullo
Nettel Deckrullo (half plate) with Ross Xpres

This Nettel Deckrullo camera is designed for the British size ‘half plate’ (4 ¾ x 6 ½ “, or 12 x 16.5 cm) and can be dated from the initial period of the Nettel Camerawerk when the shutter became self-capped and called Deck Rouleau. Another interesting feature is the external lateral scissor-type struts, only present in the larger Nettel cameras during a short period, around 1908-1910.

The shutter is the self-capped Deck Rouleau delivering speeds in the range 2/3 to 1/2000 seconds, set by the combination of 3 spring tensions and varying slit (between 1 and 125 mm). The lens is a Ross Xpres with 8 ½ ‘’ of focal length and maximum aperture of 4.5. The focusing mechanism has two scales for different objectives (in feet) but without referring which lenses.
