  • same as Nizo 148 XL and Nizo 156 XL, but with different lens

  • "The shutter has a sector aperture of 225 degrees and provides an exposure of 1/28 second for each frame at a speed of 18 f.p.s. This is 50% more than possible with normal shutters on conventional cameras and means a gain of half a stop." (Braun Nizo Instructions)
