This little camera is the feature packed, range topping compact Nizo, offered here in the rarer "safari" black edition.
You get a lot of "Bang for your buck" wth this camera. For a start, we have the beautiful design by Dieter Rams. The body panels are manufactued using similar materials to those used in aircraft fuselage construction. So what you have in your hand is a sturdy feeling camera with great balance. It's so well balanced, that it will stand perfectly on the handle. It's all not jut good looks though! The camera has a great Schneider Kreuznach 7-56mm macro zoom lens (The exact same lens as on the larger Nizo 561 Macro), an XL (eXsiting Light) shutter, which allows you to shoot in lower light situations compared to the standard Nizo 156 model. You've got a great selection of running speeds to choose from too. Single frame for animation. 9fps for shooting stationary objects in extremely low light, or for wonderful motion blur should you need for effect. 18fps for standard shooting. 24fps for panning and fast moving objects. Shooting at 24fps also helps facilitate more professional and smooth looking transfers to digital video. You also have 36fps for slow motion. Fully automatic and manual aperture control.
- But wait! There's more! You also have the great little +1 button. This works like a "backlight button". If you are shooting subjects against a bright background, for example a bright sunny sky, you can depress the +1 button (whilst shooting) to get a little extra exposure on people's faces. You also have anther great little feature that allows you to do time lapse photography!
With this little Nizo, you can shoot most of the current Kodak Portfolio of Super 8 films with ease! When shooting Kodak Ektachrome 100D Colour Reversal, please remember to have the filter switch on the "sun" position. The filter with will be removed automatically by the camera, as 100D is a daylight balanced film, and does not need the filter in place. This ensures that the film is rated at 100ASA, and that you'll get correct exposure. If you manually remove the filter so that the "bulb" symbol is visible, the camera will then rate the film at 160 ASA, resulting in underexposure.*
