That is one fine lens you've got there! The colors and sharpness are impressive. And, OF COURSE your composition is excellent! :-)

Hi, may I chime in? These are my recent experiments with Moskva-5.









Amazing camera, if only its rangefinder was a bit larger...

Yukio - Those are both great photos! The colors in with the Super Speedex and Solinar really have great depth. The lighting with the Super Baldax is just wonderful. Thanks for sharing them.

Mikeong - how do you like your Moskva? I have one that I have only used once, and wan't terribly pleased with.

Thanks for the comments, oftheherd.

The Ansco shot was taken with Portra 400 (VC, I think). This was the first color roll that I had put through it and I was surprised by the clarity. The uneven tones in the sky are probably due to my sloppy processing.

Could just be dust in your calibration area. I frequently have the same problem. Clean the opaque window in the holder and also the glass platten very well and see if it goes away.

I rarely use it, mostly for portraits. The RF is quite small for me, I don't mind the shutter release button at the left side of the body. I'm also satisfied with the lens, nice bokeh.

Got my Moskva 5 front standard straightened and the rangefinder almost aligned. Even managed to get it back together without killing the bellows.

Unfortunately its been relatively overcast; I ended up pushing 400 speed film to 1600 and was still only shooting around f/5.6-8.

This camera is incredibly frustrating. I love the compact size. I love the reactions I get while shooting with it. The lens is still softer than I was hoping though and I still haven't figured out how to shoot it without getting some camera shake (even at 1/100th). Like someone else here said at one point, I'm having hard time justifying using it over the Retina IIIc as much as I like the potential of the larger negatives. The main advantage is the improved tonality and smaller grain but I don't know if that is worth it. I'm still holding out in hopes I can improve I have a feeling that I want this particular camera to be something it isn't.

Voigtlander Perkeo I - Tmax100. I really enjoy using this camera because it is so compact and easy to carry around:

Brian Legge - how did you straighten your lens standard. Mine seems not to pop into place, even when I move it to what seems parallel. Sounds like you had to remove the bellows? That sounds scary. You have some nice shots anyway. I thought the first was particularly interesting, with both people looking right at you.

I don't think I'll ever do better than this

Visiting Paris and had my folder out, loaded with Tri-x and vaguely set-up for the light and range when this immaculate Citroen DS pulled out into the Vendome. I managed to pull off a shot.

This thread is inspiring me to get my Ikonta C out. But then again, it's so damn heavy and I can barely leave the house these days. Old glories it'll have to be.

when i was kid i used to hate the look of those Citroen's , who ever designed such a dorky ugly car (we didnt get many of them here in Australia, pretty scarce) but now they do look a whole lot more interesting to me, not that i could ever see myself owning one but kinda cool for the university and coffee shop hip look

the Ikonta C isnt that heavy is it, give it a go
I'll have to dig it out of my GAS cupboard. It is cropped, looking at it. Now i think of it, might have cropped out the gig reflective silver sphere thats in that corner of Place Vendome. A little distracting! The Ikonta was my first 'exotic' camera and that huge negative can be amazing. But when I say "heavy", I mean I usually woud take it out with a DSLR, a Polaroid 430, maybe my rarely trigger Speed Graphic, etc. All jammed into a Billibgham 335, with lenses and film and batteries and Rough Guides. You know, the usual. I think I may have wrecked my back.

Now my loadout is a Leica M9 with a lens or two in a small crumpler. I shoot Polaroids on a 600 Professional and I'm trying to decide what to do with my 5D and my R2A, amongst others. I've still got a lot of unscanned film, some half-shot rolls of 135 and MF. Everything's a mess and I am a radiology guinea pig to boot.

But enough if that. The DS was so beautiful - like driving a cloud. It was too big for North London's tiny streets, but on motor ways and country roads - oh la la! And the pneumohydraulic suspension was too much fun. Then again, she was too much classic for my salary at the time!

Good old clam faced Citroen. Probably the most advanced automobile ever made as a production car. The H/P suspension was adjustable on the fly, come to a rough road raise the car up on the suspension, out on the freeway lower it for the lowest possible center of gravity. The power everything, even the gearshift lever, was touch sensitive; the harder you pushed the more assist it gave. That design was done in a wind tunnel, the car got about 50% more mpg than its contemporaries with the same size engine and less weight.

The down side was you almost had to have a full time mechanic to keep everything working properly. All the gimmicks and gadgets made for a maintenance nightmare. Or, so I have been told by folks who owned one.

Would that one be an ID-11? The Super Ikonta C seems to be the appropriate camera to photograph one with. Of course a French camera would be even more so.

Isolette I (the one without the Dof scale!), at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Haggled it down to 15€ because it needed a good cleaning, now works well except for slow speeds : the screws on the shutter are made of extremely soft metal (aluminium?) and they wont move at all!

Walking out of Grotto Certo Six

Walking out of Grotto Canyon last summer I grabbed this shot using my Certo Six. Handheld unfortunately so edges are a little soft.
Ilford XP-2.
The Certo Six is a interesting camera... a real pig to use, but when you get by the bad ergonomics the Zeiss 2.8 80mm lens does a nice job.

Well, his lens probably has a nice haze on it. 120 film is not as wide as 616, so it would not be well supported. The film he is using may be way out of date.

Still, I like the effect, and not many folks would make the effort to use a 70 year old camera you can no longer get film for. Also, he picked the type of shots that actually benefit from the problems, he deserves a hearty pat on the back.

Here's the one shot that came out nicely from the Zeiss Ikon Nettar 17/16 that I bought:


A pretty funny story: I bought the camera for super cheap then never shot anything with it because I couldn't find 120 film or developing locally. I put it on Craigslist and some guy emailed me saying he'd send me a roll of 120 and pay for processing. He lost the negatives for a few months, but finally sent them to me and there's the result.
