The Iskra's are also good for Sports Photography:

Looks great! I like square for portraits. I should try some b&w in mine. (The problem is I don't have 6x6 holders for my scanner so I scan three times and paste toghether in photoshop...)

hither ~ So... are you, like.... surrounded by beautiful models ALL the time?

Todd ~ nothing like a skateboard thrown in the mix to get rid of the "not-so-enthused" expression! :D

Good shots all, guys. Really good. :cool:

Indeed, and your shot is a ringer!

They can have my Iskra when they pry it from my cold, dead hands.

What scanner are you using? I use an Epson 3170.

Mine are handheld, pretty easy to do with leaf shuters.

Craig, those are great portraits!

Canon 4200F... Hope to get an Epson someday. Preferably something with better sharpness for 35 mm than what I have today as well.

The lens on Iskra will distort as you get close. Moskva is much better in this regard. The front cell element moves like a modern float element to mnimize distortion.

Distortion? No, his toe is really as big as his nose! Actually, doesn't everything distort close up?
I love the out of focus background with the Iskra, by the way.

Maybe we should start a show us a picture from your Iskra thread.

Here's a contribution, a winter scene along the Hudson, with maybe a little Russian ambiance.

I shall have to try taking a portrait with it soon. Great camera.

And the Moskva suffers film-flatness and bad-struts issues that the Iskra will NEVER suffer.

Pick yer battles.

Gracias Taffer. I know it could sound incredible, but it was my second photo of the 1º roll. :D Probably the beginners luck.
