Does this one count?



It's not mine and it's not loved by many, but it has a Robot inside!

Lovely. I'm thinking about getting one of these myself - I might bombard you with some questions nearer the time if that's OK. Do you know any good sites with general information about these?

Cheers

Sure, don't hesitate to ask ! It's taken long until I found the right one for me (I wanted a IIIR with Compur Rapid up to 1/400 badly ) but it's worth it indeed, IMHO.

As far as I know there is no place fully devoted to these cameras, however there are a few places to read interesting notes.

The manual for the IIIR is here, together with some interesting general notes by Richard Urmonas:

http://www.urmonas.net/manuals/makina/makina.html

The same for the rollfilm holder:

http://www.urmonas.net/manuals/plauroll/plauroll.html

Jo Lommen's pages are interesting:

http://lommen9.home.xs4all.nl/plaubel/index.html

This series of posts by Gunnar Buettner is very informative:

http://photo.net/classic-cameras-forum/00Qjdr

A great gallery by RJ Lam with the Anticomar (regarded as one of the worst Tessar-type lens, but still...):

http://www.luxcamera.co.uk/pages/Ant...l%20Makina.htm

Of course Camerapedia and the like to have a general idea of the different models and variations. And myself, if I can be of any help

I'll add mine.

My first Rolleiflex, which I got basically for free. It now has a brighter focusing screen and a lens hood that peter_n graciously sent me for free. This picture is straight out of my 5D, I like shooting on b&w mode it has a nice feel to it.



Time to go make some good pictures!

I also have another Welta Perle - a 6x4.5. I use both Perles regularly. They are both pre WWII, from around the 1930's. Whenever I go out for a bike ride, I usually take the 645 as it's the smallest medium format camera I own.

I no longer have the Iloca, but it was a great performer after I repaired it. And the Kodaks are just a joy to use.

This is a small group of German cameras. Most of my cameras are German.

About 3 kg's of Robot's. The Royal 36 has an interesting lens on it. It is a 50f1.9 Xenon. I have seen the 40mm Xenon, never before a 50 mm. The Royal III no resides in Japan with its 30mm,45 and 75 lenses. I have kept the Royal 36 for the time being.

Hi Tom,
I read that the Robot challenged Zeiss, so Zeiss produced the Tenax camera. Its format is strange since it is not a full frame or a half frame camera. It takes square images. I find my Tenax to be an extremely well made camera. I bet that the Robot's craftmanship is equally high level.

Latest acquisition and although LF, it is German and therefore this post:
9 x 12 Heinrich Ernemann Tropen Klapp Kamera:







Since its shutter is in excellent condition I am planning to take some pictures with this camera soon.
(the pictures were shot with a Jupiter 3 lens)

ZZPZA, those shots of the Praktica BX20 and CZJ lenses are gorgeous! Good thing I'm tapped out now, or I'd be getting into another camera system.

If you mean by "challenged" that Robot sold cameras in volumes that made Zeiss green with envy... then yes.... Just as Leitz and nearly anyone else that was more sucessful than Zeiss selling cameras..... Zeiss tried to jump onto the bandwagon and ... failed.
Years later, of course, Robot did challenge Zeiss.. it offered some sluggish selling Robot Royals with Zeiss Sonnar objectives at an attractive price via Quelle (a mailorder chain somewhat like Sears).. and Zeiss responded..

I guess I should clarify, that I think this is brilliant and am wondering how it is done.
