Arran, congratulations! That looks really clean. The OM-3 had a mechanical shutter, I think. Does that mean no auto-exposure? Just like the OM-1 then? Will this be a user?

Thanks Chris
Yep, full mechanical shutter on the OM3, like the OM1 but with 1/200th shutter speed and 3200iso, plus some pretty advanced metering options too. You're right though, no fancy program modes etc.
I bought this camera unseen. It came up on a major dealer site listed very cheap (cheapest i've seen on the net in the last 2 years of looking). I bought it straight away without asking any questions, and took bit of a gamble. I assumed it'd be a little rough, which suited me as i wished to use it. However when it arrived, the damn thing was near mint and one of the nicest cameras i've ever layed my hands on (the black finish is different to the OM1 an OM2 aswell). I'm actually a little scared ot use it now. You dont come across them every day.
I've decided that i'll be using it for some indoor portrait work though and use its selective spot metering. That way i can keep it off the street

Really happy with this baby, together with my Leica M3 it's a perfect combination for any kind of shooting.
Now I'm saving up for large format 8x10"

Topcon Super D camera with RE Auto Topcor 1:1.4 f=58mm lens.

This body is a 1972 upgraded version, i.e. the so called 71 model. The built-in CdS meter, inherited from the first TTL-metered body, is directly engraved on the reflex mirror and thence the meter functions even using other viewfinders like waist level finder.

Kodak Retina Reflex with "convertible" Retina Xenon 50/2 lens.

As the camera use a between lens shutter, it has to use convertible lenses with a fixed rear group permanently installed inside the camera body. This camera share the same "convertible" lens set with my Retina IIIc camera.

amoebahydra, nice collection but could you scale down you pics just a little? It makes some of us have to scrol sideways on our measley 21 inch screen computers.

Nikon E3, my first DSLR camera.

It is a full-frame camera prior to D3 or D700. However, it use image reduction optic built into the camera body to reduce the image size in meeting sensor size. It also use in-body aperture rather than the aperture of the lens.

I also fit a Garmin GPS III unit with the camera such that I can record the location where I shot picture within the EXIF data accompanying the picture. Communications of the GPS unit and the camera is by the MNEA 0183 protocol.

Here mine are. They look kind of rough but they work fantastically. Notice the top of the Minolta. It was like that when I bought it, but operates perfectly.

The reason for the 50mm Nikon lens on the E-500? I'm using it for Keith's 14 day one camera one lens challenge.

The Rolleiflex SLR cameras are notorious for breaking down. Basically, you can count in it to occur. Spare parts are getting hard to find. I have five SL35 cameras; three of them are for spare parts. The other two have been repaired.

Looks like a lens hood stored in reverse.

Hans,

Chris is right, that is a 55/1.2 with the hood stored in reverse. Here is the other side of that shelf.

Sold all my Nikon DSLR gear last month, including all lenses. Only a Blacked-out Chinon Memotron CE-II remained, with a Super Reflecta 55mm f1.4 lens, an Auto Chinon 28mm f2.8 wide and a Typonar 135mm f3.5 tele.

This is meant to be used when it all gets too rough for the Leicas, when I'm out camping with the scouts.

The Memotron CE-II is built like a brick, it has AE priority, exposure compensation, double exposure, AE-lock and open-aperture metering with ALL M42 auto-lenses, regardless of brand. Best SLR of the seventies, can be had nowadays for under USD 50 in very nice condition. Lenses set me back ten bucks a piece.

I will put a new leather skirt on the old girl shortly, this one has shrunk over time. Thick black Leica quality paint and nice brassing, I love it.

nice collection indeed. I recently acquired F, F2A and F3hp. Very different animals. I never thought the f2a would be this HEAVY. The design is very interesting. I love the DW-1 with the F. I am going to try out street shooting with the setup soon.
