Thanks Michael and Jenquest. The missing rear flip-up sight of the closest one in that photo has been replaced recently. Now I need some proper nomenclature plate reproductions to go on them.

Rollei 35 T and Gossen Pilot. The meter in the Rollei is dead, but it still takes great photos.

Thanks,

I find it a little too dark to my taste, but at the time I wasn't in the mood to drag my spotlight from the 'studio' into the garage

There's another WW2 military scale focus camera on its way to me at the moment. In Large format this time.

A strange camera this. First version was 36x24 on 127 film, subsequent versions have 4cm x 3 cm on 127. A fun camera. Oh, it's the one on the right.

Ezzie, have you used the Derby? I'm thinking about getting one for use with 135 mm film...
I have never seen one in such condition though. How are the shutter curtains?

I was dead lucky. It is in very good condition. A bit of green corrosion on some of the screw heads, a bit of wear on the leatherette, and that was it. The curtains on mine look pristine. That is evidently an exception. No pinholes at all, and I have shot into the sun too. Shutters themselves can also be faulty. Mine has worked very well on all speeds tested 1/25 to 1/100. Not tried 1/200 and 1/500 yet, they look slow when looking through the camera back to front, when open.

It's great fun to use. The viewfinder is a bit squinty of course, but with practice you can frame reasonably accurately. The shutter scares the hell out of you the first few shots, as the dial rotates 3/4 of a turn, back to start in a heartbeat and gives off what best can be described as a mating call from a grouse.

It is tiny. Put two iPhones on top of eachother and you have it (except for the dials and finder). Can be put in any pocket. The extra 40% film real estate (compared to 135) is noticeable. I am seriously considering buying a second for parts, in case it breaks down. Test shot here: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8227/8...f0d32233_b.jpg

This Kodak Retinette #160 came with my Graflex Combat Graphic as a freebie. It needed a new coat of black paint, a coat of leather polish and a drop of lighter fluid to be revived.

This arrived in the mail today:

1938-1940-ish Robot Star II




It's in better shape than expected. I'm sure the shutter could use a cleaning, but it winds, the spring seems in good shape, the shutter releases, everything seems to work. The uncoated Zeiss Biotar seems in very good condition ... no fungus, no oil contamination. There are both supply and take up spools in it too.

I've been curious about these little buggers for a few decades. This one was pretty inexpensive. Guess I need to load a roll of film and see what I get before I send it off for service. :-)

Sweet Robot you have there, Godfrey.

I just received a Univex Mercury II that's going to need a major overhaul (And a beautiful Contax II with a broken shutter ribbon).

Hi,

I'll wish you luck with the Contax II, mine had both ribbons go and nearly a year later I'm still waiting patiently.

Thanks, I'm pretty jazzed by it. A cool camera.

Good luck with the Contax II!
