Instruction manual:



Same as Nizo 6080, but with a different lens. The only difference from the Nizo 4056 is the fact that the 4056 doesn't accept a Kodak-60m-cassette. (The 6056 can do some longer rewinds with that 60m-cassette, too.)

The 4056/4080/6056/6080 can handle cartridges with a 64ASA-setting, hence they should be able to handle the new Ektachrome 64T correctly.

You can replace the "rechargeable-battery-box" with the battery-box from the Nizo "S"-Series and/or "Nizo "Professional". The later ones can be opened without any problems, hence you can replace the rechargable batteries with newer ones. As the "schmalfilm"-magazine 1-2/1994 states, you can even use normal 1.5V AA batteries instead of the 1.2V rechargable ones: There's a diode called "ZY12" to protect the camera from overvoltage, but the 9V (6x 1.5V) instead of the 7.2V (6x 1.2V) are still within the limits of the "ZY12". Nevertheless using rechargable batteries saves you a lot of money and is more "environment-friendly".
