The 2.8D is basic and functional with its sharp 80mm/2.8 Planar lens but without a meter. It is still also my favorite. This model was produced in the year when I was born. It has to be special!

New TLR

My wife just bought me a new Rolleiflex, bless her heart. It's an unusual version with the lever and knobs on different sides. Hope no one's jealous.......

Rolleiflex T 1/3.5 75

I got this camera from my mother when I was 14. That was 25 years ago.



The image was made by putting the camera face down on a scanner. At that time there wa no digital camera available.

That's cute. I am jealous. I guess then it is time to drag up my photo of my Snaps o Flex again. I also have two other of my TLR's in my gallery. My latest acquisition awaits my developing the roll of film I put through it before I show and describe it in a separate thread.

Nice one! When is someone going to come up with a more up-to-date Point-n-Schnapps or for more storage, a Canon EOSchnapps 1D with telephoto lens. That could keep a whole bleacher section "warm".

I had no idea about the red ribbons. How thoroughly cool! (And I'm amazed there are new and pristine Rolleiflexes out there still.)

here comes the whole family!



The two Yashica Mat 124 Gs and the little Yashica 44 LM are making fun of the poor little Ross Ensign Ful-Vue Super...


I know something is strange about the 124 on the left. It seems to have the body of a Yashica Mat 124 (not "G") but still has the meter and name plate of the "G" version. god knows why. I love both of them. I think the earler chrome lever and copal were a little more bootiful though. Maybe.


And this is the 44 all alone and fully armed:




and nekkid:

My Ricoh Diacord and Meopta Flexaret Va. They are works in progress. I bought the Flexaret over three years ago but the focusing screen was dim and dirty. I never could figure out how to get the top off so it sat. A friend gave me the Diacord. I cleaned off the focusing screen but I have a hard time focusing on just ground glass. So it sat, too. Then I discovered Rick Oleson's focusing screens with a split image spot. The screens transform these cameras. Now I'm measuring for new leather. More pictures and a longer story at my Flickr set.

YashicaMat LM (ca. 1958). Won on eBay, and then CLA'd by Mark Hama a couple of years ago. Running beautifully since then.




Lubitel 2 (ca. 1975?) Given to me by a kind friend. Lots of fun and lightweight.
