One more of my Super Ikonta 530/2 with uncoated Tessar 105 mm f/3.8 (before I detected the light leak).

Getting a massage:

(There is some blur because of subject movement & slow shutter speed)

P.S.: Please note the camera on the table

That's the stuff! Almost clinical in detail -- which lens? (This is a B-25, yes?)

Thank you for sharing the photos with the Apotar, Johnny!
This lens and Ektar100 is a interesting combination.
To me, the colours look almost natural.

And nice to see that the lens from your Record III has found a new home.

Thank you Thomas . I had seen the Apotar praised, and can see for myself that it is a fine lens. If/when I can get its own shutter complete, then it can 'go back home' to the Record .

Thanks. 2.8 Tessar 80mm. It's a Douglas A-26, I believe.

All the mid-range triplets are very good at f/8-f/11. (These look like they've gotten some extra sharpening in post?)

BTW: That's an R2600 (= B-25).

Yes, in fact that batch were mostly at f/11, some f/8 . As far as sharpening goes, they look much the same to me as received from the process lab. BTW, if anybody wants to propose any specific three-glass triplet(s) as being in a 'higher range' than the likes of the Apotar, I would be interested to learn. FWIW my own experience has also been good with Ensign's Ensar, Kershaw's Otar, Voigtlander's Helomar, and the Novar on the Super Ikonta III, which spring to mind .

My experiences with the Apotar (105 mm f/4.5) and Novar Anastigmat (75 mm f/3.5) are also good - I try to use them at f/11 to f/22 if possible.

I was given a 1956 AGFA Isolette III with the 75mm f3.5 SOLINAR lens and Synchro-Compur shutter -- I have tried it at full aperture and it is SHARP -- I will see if I can upload some samples at full aperture off Flickr -- keep watching!

Voigtländer Perkeo II

From the Perkeo II roll of XP2 Super. The light level was an issue .. proper exposure had me down to f/4 and 1/10 second, and getting the focus on the mark proves challenging when you're guesstimating.

I scanned my first roll out of the Bessa III last evening ... having a coupled rangefinder solves that focus problem for sure! I've also bought some Ilford 3200 film to help with the low light situations issue.

I love this format. :-)

I took out the Zeiss Ikonta last week when I was in the mood to use the old folder. These couple of shots from the old steel works in Belval are the result. Belval is in Luxembourg very close to the French border. It is now a reclaimed space with offices, university buildings, shopping and apartments but they have left much of the blast furnace there and are even restoring parts of it as a museum.

1950's British Ensign Selfix 16/20 model I with 75mm f4.5 ENSAR lens -- I did a 20x16" darkroom print of this and won the Landscape, Skyscape , Seascape Trophy at Brentwood Photographic Club. ( Non-Rangefinder - is it allowed?)

Those look great Pete, by chance I have taken my 1620 to work today. What lovely camera's they are mine has an XPress lens which is quite up to Tessar standards image wise.

Have you tried to make a 'human rangefinder' I have one in my Selfix's case, I show how on my blog:

Cool! I was about to say, wouldn't that need to be adjusted for rangefinder base length ... er, interocular distance? Then when I clicked all the way through to Tom Achtemichuk's site, sure enough he's got it (as "eye offset"). I hadn't thought about arm length, but I played around with his generator, and as I would have expected, small variations in IOD had greater effect than variation in arm length. There are various self-service ways to measure IOD--for use in online-ordering eyeglasses without ever walking into the optician's--but it's really best done by an optician, and once you've had it measured, I presume it never changes, even with age.

Great site, great card generator; thanks for the link through from your blog.

Photo Smith : Thanks for your comment -- yes, I have read about the 'Human Rangefinder' but decided I can 'guess' ( or 'Estimate' to be more Professional) the distances. My 'First GOOD Camera' was teh 16/20 model II with teh 75mm f3.5 Xpres lens but I think I was sold a bad sample as I never seemed to get the sharpness I should get, even using electronic flash or with w tripod -- I sold it to a Camera Club member for £10-00 -- then I was given an old 'Amateur Photographer' magazine and in there is the advertisement for that same camera !!

From my second roll with my Moskwa 5 (Industar 24 105 mm f/3.5, Porta 400)

The first one is cropped and the second one suffers a litte from light leaking as I was a litte careless at roll change.
