I did not. I need to work out a washer or spacer solution for the bottom of the camera around the tripod socket on the Record to make a tripod work for me.

And the grain in that shot tells us why we like roll film folders, so we well not complain that you posted a 35mm shot in the 120 forum.

Actually, I did not think the difference would show up so well in a web sized jpeg.

The priest photo is very very nice, in my opinion, and well-timed.

It's not a rangefinder, it's scale focus, but I just got my hands on a Zeiss Ikonta 521 A with a Tessar 75mm f3.5. Great camera, unbelievably compact for medium format, huge finder, and I like the 4,5 x 6 cm image proportions.Here it is:



...and here are some first results, FP4+ at ISO 125:

Not a rangefinder, but a folder, a Franka Rolfix II with 105mm Rodenstock-Trinar lens.
Shot with an expired roll of Fujicolor Pro400H film metered (on hand held meter) at 320ISO.

The Lovers

Recently discovered the joys of MF folders. This is a couple I found cuddled up for the sunrise. Shot with a Balda Super Baldax with a Radionar f/2.9 and Ektar 100.

Sometimes the script embossed into the leather on these bodies looks like an S, when it's really a B. I have had two or three of these Balda made camera, and with that Radionar fast lens, it makes a formidable and capable 6 square folder.

Very nice image... great camera. I can tell you from experience, when you decide you've had your fling with folders and you sell it..... YOU WILL MISS IT?

The details in the clouds and the details in the surf are the proof of the excellence of this lens/film combo.

This thread inspired me to look into 120 folders. Nice pics everyone!

From my test roll in an Isolette II/Apotar - a work in progress.

Thanks Kuzano. That must have been a typo on my part as I am well aware of what the model is. It's a fabulous little folder. My only slight issue is the occasional hang-up with the double exposure shutter lock not always engaging when you advance the film. It's easy to work around that though. I imagine if I were to sell it, I would miss it, much the same way that I did when I sold my Rolleiflex a few years ago. Luckily I just got another one a couple of weeks ago so all is right with the world again
