The maintenance tray for my Epson 3800 finally filled up with surplus ink so I replaced it with a new one.
Not very exciting.
I'd rather have a lens. Or a camera. Or a pony.

Oh well, it was only $20

After two recently purchased good working examples, I guess I'm now prepared to experiment with a Nikkormat FTn body with some imperfections ...

Canon LTM 50mm 1.2

I finally found one nearby and pulled the trigger.
It’s quite good in shape but suffers from that famous haze that doesn’t come off completely. Tried with Isopropyl Alcohol and also cleaning petrol. Obviously it had no CLA for a longer time. Payed a reasonable price with the original hood.
I took it out for a little walk with the family and tested it in the snowy forest. Mostly wide open, just a few on f5.6 and f16. Main use won’t be critical landscapes with absolutely perfect corner sharpness anyway. Would definitely use it wide open for painting like pictures. Of course portraits, also some moody landscapes like in the attached exemples. Hope you enjoy them. Constructive criticism is always appreciated.

I have almost the same combo (LTM 1.2, A7RII). Great lens. It works well on the Tech Art Pro adapter too. I used naptha on my inner element and it cleaned up well. I also soaked the lower half in naptha to clean the aperture blades as they were very oily.

Have fun!

Just received and tested a Moskva 5. Beautiful camera and great, sharp lens. To be honest, wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. It smell kinda musty though, so could do without that

I bought one of the "As Is", for parts or repair, Olympus XA cameras that KEH has listed. $45 + 7 for shipping. They have 7 more XA or XA2 just like this -- in good cosmetic condition, except someone has wired the shutter button with a lead and jack to fire a flash. I'm really stumped about what the use-case was.

http://www.ebaystores.com/KEH-Camera...&_sid=22689279

I'm betting the XA will be functional, and that I will succeed in taking off the top cover, and removing the lead. So far, I'm 4 for 4 at winning the KEH As-Is lottery: Canon T90, Pentax Auto 110, Nimslo 3D, and Stereo Realist. All of them work, after very minor fiddling.

How Not To Pack A Scanner

Especially not for shipping to the other side of the world.

HP G4050. So much for scanning my films...

this is AFTER the guy didn't post it until I complained... The box isn't even as big as the scanner! Do people not understand glass anymore?

A Nikon F100, been dreaming about it for a while. Next up is buying a lens for it, guess I'll just go with the 50mm 1.8g.
Oh and a backup back for the sq-a, getting hard to find.

First post after lurking around for 10+ years!

Ouch! What are these people thinking, if they're thinking, at all.

I recently had to take back a Rebel film camera with lens sold on Ebay, as buyer claimed it was not as described. Not true. Anyway... rather than ship back in the box I had used, the camera was shipped in a USPS "padded" envelope (thin plastic, single layer of bubble wrap), with no additional protection. And, it survived!

See I wonder if just wrapping it in a plastic bin liner would have worked better: near identical protection but at least it tells the postal workers "careful, this one was packed by an idiot". Your camera might have benefited from feeling fragile...

@Jonne: Welcome! you lurked about as long as I did until just recently... Good luck with the F lenses!

@Pherdinand: Is yours a true triplet design, or is the one on (her) left actually a cemented doublet, making her more of a Tessar type?

Hehe.
But the paper stash buy, though it sounds much less interesting, is true.

The camera arrived quickly, since I live in Georgia, where KEH is based. As I expected, the camera does work, and it is very clean, with hardly any indications of use.

I just watched 2 great YouTube videos on XA service, part of a larger set:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9z3759ifs8
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6COwOf6rFFY

It will take a little more disassembly than I expected, to get at the shutter button... so, I will work on it in a few days. In the second video, I can see exactly where the shutter button contacts are, to which the custom flash lead must be attached.

I bought an accessory Rangefinder made by Photopia for use with my Ensign Selfix 1620. Not quite the right marked distances but close enough. I had gone to the shop to see in they had a Lomo Blik rangefinder for use with my Welta Weltax but they didn't have any.

I also bought a Tamron 24mm f2.5 01B adaptall 2 lens case for use with my Tamron 24mm f.2 01BB lens, thinking that it's supposed to be basically the same design with the same filter thread so it should fit, but no, my lens is a tidgy bit too big for it.

That lens is still in my Tamron 28-50mm lens case.

I've now got my Nikon 50mm f1.4 lens in the 24mm lens case. That lens was in a Tamron 35-70 f3.5-4.5 lens case.

That case was meant for my Tamron 35-70 f3.5 lens, but it was a squeeze, so I decided to leave the lens on my F301 until I got a case for it.

I do have a second tamron 35-70mm f3.5-4.5 lens case. I didn't it buy for my 35-70 lens as I thought it would be too small, but I don't know why I did buy it.

Anyway, while I was faffing about trying the 24mm lens in the 24mm case and getting nowhere I accidentally found out that one of my 35-70mm lens cases does actually fit the 35-70mm lens in it, even though both cases are for the same model lens which is different to the model lens I have!

Another Retina which I got earlier but I had no time to post here is the beautiful Kodak Retina IIa. Some days after it arrived (looking in quite good shape), it suddenly froze in full open position. I've done some small repairs to other shutters, but a Synchro Compur is well above my level. So I followed other's advice and sent it to the other side of the World to Chris Sherlock, and despite the Xmas season high traffic, it returned to me just in time for a trip in early February, and now it works flawlessly. It even has a small "Serviced by Chris Sherlock january 19" small decal inside. It's paired with a beautiful retailer's decal on the back, indicating that this camera was sold to its first owner, German I presume, in the town of Bensheim, north of Frankfurt am Mainz.

I have a IIa, as well. Purchased at a flea market for $8, in 1989. I shot a few rolls with it. Years later, I would like to make it a regular, but, winding no longer charges the shutter, as I recall. How much was the service?

It was 210 NZ $, about 125€, plus the cost of shipping it to the other side of the World. The way back was included in the service cost. And even sending it through Xmas shipping madness, it stayed away from home arround 6 weeks.

Obviously this cost is much more than your wonderful flea market cost of 8 $, but now my IIa works as new. I used it in a trip to Northern Norway were it worked flawlessly at -8º or even -15º (and a Soviet FT-2 stuck frozen every time we went outdoors).

Went to a Jewelry/Pawn closing and estate sale. Picked up a Chinon Bellami for $10. Has a small crack on external viewfinder, and mild wear. But, it had good batteries in it, and everything seems to be working. With user manual, but, no flash.

Lacking rangefinder, the Bellami is more like a Minox 35 GL, rather than Olympus XA.

I must say, the wind-lever-operated barn door mechanism seems a likely cause of eventual failure.
