View Full Version : My new RF
Attached is photo of new acqusition-- Graphic 35 2.8. Just shot a roll of Tri-X but haven't developed it yet. Camera well made. The toggle focus buttons are sorta strange but the unit fits well in the hand and the shutter release that looks like a self-time actually works pretty well. I'll post the results.
I don't think I've ever seen that one before. Is that an Agfa?
Nope. Graphic 35. Graflex sold them from 1955 to 1958 (although mine has a 1959 sn) Body made in U.S. and shutter and lens in Germany. It was the only 35mm I think, to ever gave the push button focusing system on each side of the lens. Like a sheet film graphic, you have to cock the shutter manually with a tab on top of the lens. Really a smooth operating camera. I'm interested in seeing my test results.
