Never ever browse secondhand camera shop websites just after activating a new credit card. I saw a secondhand r-d1. These are the first shots with it.


Apart from the two entiries preceding these (taken with a Contax T) in my fotoblog http://jfbell20.fotopages.com were taken with a Bessa R.

IMy camera bag consists of a Bessa R for my very wide angle lens and the epson r-d1 forr other lens in a CSS Lancaster bag from their heritage range ( http://www.ccscentre.co.uk/ ). While sorting this bag, I found an old mobile phone case which was just the right sise ffor my 90mm lens which I intend to use on the R-d1 with a Russian viewfinder.

The lens was a Voigtlander 28/3.5 Color-Skopar.

The camera was 75% of the rice of a new one.
