A fun little camera with replaceable front element lenses (I believe, I cannot see the removal tab at the bottom on yours). Note the alternate framelines in the viewfinder. I had a couple of those cameras, in various permutations, still have one with a non-removable lens. They feel jewel-like in the hand, very precise, very well-made. Given time and effort, they can make lovely images as well. Enjoy!

Mamiya 6 plus its three lenses. Is it hip to be square?

Thank you, and yes, it is a Contina matic III apparently -- the lens release tab is broken off, but one can still remove the front element with any pointy thing.

The Prontor is also a bit off -- some sort of untrue double-stroke is now happening; film advance #1, you can press the shutter release button and it fires; advance #2, the shutter fires *automatically*, advance #3 = #1, #4 = #2, and so forth ...

Perhaps I should put it on the 2018 RFF Holiday Giveaway! List, I hope there is someone who gives that little gem the TLC it needs -- bmattock, what about you?

My first camera was a Contina. It had no RF and it came with a 45/2.8 Pantar lens.

Thank you but no - I am in a new house that is much much smaller than my old one, and downsizing as I can. I need fewer cameras! But I have always loved those Continas. I'm sorry the winder is giving you trouble.

I took some photos a decade or so ago with a Contina with the Novar lens as I recall, the non-removable one. I had an external rangefinder and it worked out pretty well, although it was a bit of a pain to get everything working together well. Nice photos; definitely had that 'tessar' look to them in my opinion. And I've always loved how they feel. Such quality little machines!

Just bought a Voigtlander 15mm M-mount version III lens w/15mm Voigtlander viewfinder from Stephen at CameraQuest. Super fast overnight shipping, arrived safe and sound this morning, and renders beautifully on my M9.

Thanks Stephen. And Happy Holidays to everyone here on RFF.

Best,
-Tim

I just got a 35mm/F2.5 Color Skopar. I purchased mine from Stephen Gandy's Cameraquest too. It shipped right away and got here to the East coast very quickly. I've shot about a roll and a half with it on the M4. I haven't developed any of the film yet, but it looks to be a great walk around lens.

A shroud for the back of my excellent summilux 35mm pre-aspheric lens that came without one. The matching shroud was purchased this month from Leica. I sent the lens and shroud to DAG who machined and installed it so that I can use the lens on digital Leica bodies without problem.

Something I wanted...a Kodak projection print scale for $3 ! I have the Delta one, but it's steps are too far apart making it hard to use. Also, a Kodak 2001 Pocket Photoguide for another $3 !

A cheap, but very much happy making Christmas gift to myself!

159mm F2 B&L Super Cinephor by Nokton48, on Flickr


Another new lens for me. Bausch & Lomb 159mm F2 Super Cinephor. Intended for 70mm and 35mm theatrical film projection. Uber speed for this focal length. Pushing the envelope.

Will go on my Plaubel Makiflexes and Sinar Normas.


Schneider Tele Xenar 180 f5.5 barrel by Nokton48, on Flickr

180mm F5.5 Schneider Tele-Xenar in a barrel. Also for Makiflexes. 6x9cm barrel lens

My new Petzval lens! by Nokton48, on Flickr

Petzval lens of unknown make. This one is going to major fun to use! Swirly Petzval bokeh, hopefully F3.0

Around two hundred years old. Needs a good clean and a mounting flange.

After an informative discussion here at RRF, I did go ahead and purchase a Rolleiflex 4.0 FW, in like-new condition. Then, icing on the proverbial cake, I added a yellow filter and a new-in-box Rolleiflex lens shade, Bay IV,, purchased from Leica-Lisse in Holland. Good experience with them, too.

A c.1890 Lancaster Instantograph (half-plate size), with three double plate holders and three lenses. Unfortunately, two of the lenses are of a larger diameter than the mounting flange. Maybe I could find their proper flange and then manufacture a new frontal board... Anyway, I also bought some days later a quite similar lens (with diaphragm) and with it's own flange.

An Enna Munchen Ennalyt 95mm f2.8. This is an unusual lens in a very unusual focal length. It is a triplet according to some internet sites which I ma inclined to believe as its quite light. But others have referred to it as a 4 element design so I am not sure. (If it is a triplet I imagine it to be somewhat like the Zeiss Triotar which is also sharp though tend to be slower than f2.8 so perhaps a four element design is more likely). In any event when stopped down a bit it is surprisingly sharp -at least enough for nice portraits. Cost $50 Australian (about $35 US) at this price I could not resist - especially given it is in that 90-100mm range which I enjoy so much.

The following are not my images but are good for illustrative purposes:

According to info in the below link, it's a 4-element, 3-group design...

The Ennalyt 95/2.8 seems to be a four elements design, and perhaps the -lyt points to it being a dialyte construction.

Thanks Doug. I had seen that diagram but other references I saw referred to it as a triplet. Perhaps they meant "modified triplet". But this diagram is nothing like any modified triplet I have seen - e.g. Tessars where one lens element was divided into a cemented pair.

Arrived today; Contax I (version 7 according to Kuc's book) with CZJ 5cm f/2.8 Tessar.

Curtain straps are alright, but the shutter and focus helical are stiff.
Will get the once over in the new year.

A Polaroid 636 Closeup. Kind of a crappy standard 80s Polaroid that takes 600 film, but it was as-new in box.

I'll probably flip it because I bought it for nothing and this model actually sells for more money than most of the 600 film models (because of the close focusing, I guess).
