Top-of-the-range folding roll-film camera previously made by Wünsche and later by Zeiss-Ikon. From Zeiss the Nixe was available with f4.5 or f6.3 Tessars or f6.3 Double Protars in 3 ¼" x 4 ¼" and 3 ¼" x 5 ½" sizes. Over its long existence the camera changed considerably. Late models have a worm screw motion to the cross front and a wire frame finder.
