Scan-161104-0001 by Nokton48, on Flickr

Ye Old Mill, Utica, Ohio "The Ice Cream Factory".
Went there with my wife to enjoy some time together. Quickly taking a few photographs was a bonus.

Plaubel Makina III, 100mm F4.2 Anticomar (the rare, very sharp, Makina 100mm lens!), Ilford FP4+, Legacy Mic-X
I was testing the viewfinder framing capabilities of this camera and they are quite precise. When I was a practicing architectural photographer, I started a photograph by composing the outer edges of the frame (in a highly precise manner, this is easier in 4x5 and even better 8x10), and then worked my way inward into the center of the photograph.. I am very pleased with the precision framing in the optical system of this Makina III.

Gawd, love these things, even though I must divest my folders due to no longer being able to handle chems...skin condition recurring...nothing like these pics and the above from old Bessa I is spectacular...occupies one for quite the while.

Thanks.

I really like the photo of Brandenburg Gate -- lots of history!

Especially when using a Moskva-5 camera, very "cold war".

Semi Leotax DL

Purchased the Semi Leotax DL from Japan and looks like the bellows and lens are in fine working condition. My developing skills could use some work however.

Grease smear...looks fixable. The vehicles to right of Toy sign are much sharper in the Ikonta pic...could be as simple as removing the front lens and cleaning?

It's a light leak but haven't figured out from where.

I was sharing to show how much more contrasty the Ikonta is over the Leotax. And a bit more sharp. If I could get the Ikonta fixed it would definitely be my go to color film camera for 120. I have XP2 loaded in the Leotax today.

Bellows? Am sure you have checked, so maybe edge of door...

Edges at folds? Maybe slight crack shows up only when bellows is extended?

Tough testing for light leak, but would be more than worth it to fix, IMHO.

Opton lens?

I happen to have a 6x9 Ikonta Mess I used to use for BW infinity shots.

Cannot use now cuz chemicals give me skin rash, so was going to sell it...Really too nice to sell too nice to let alone.

Again, IMHO, worth fixing.

I went out on 'Expired Film Day' March 15th with my 1956 Agfa Isolette III with 75mm f3.5 Solinar loaded with 1998 dated Ilford HP5 that had been in camera since December 2016, so I finished it up as it was sunny ! I rated film at 250 ASA and processed in my 'home-made' Microphen 1+1 for 11.5 mins @ 20oC and got some good negs!

These are also lovely. One is amazing...btw. Me have never paid much attention to exp dates...only how stored. I have film that is over 50 years old and it does the job as well as in its day. FWIW. Have freezer full of sealed up TX and Ilford BW film...

Ikonta A Special 521. True, it's not a rangefinder, but it still does the job.
