Yesterday I picked up a small lot of Konica SLR's and lenses.

First, a black FS-1 with a Hexanon 52mm f1.8 from the early-Seventies, with "EE" as the automatic aperture marking and a chrome focus ring.... This one is even older than my dad's beloved 52mm lens on his T3n.

Second, a black FP-1 with a Hexanon AR 40mm f1.8 pancake lens. (That "Hexanon AR" means this was a budget lens, probably the original kit lens with the camera.) This is an odd camera because its AE mode is weird, but it can still run in aperture-priority mode like any Autoreflex. This camera seems to work well... I'll find out when I develop the roll.

Third, a Hexanon 135mm f3.5 telephoto with both caps in very clean, undamaged condition. It too is old enough to have "EE" as its automatic aperture marking.

Unfortunately, the FS-1 crashes when I press the shutter button, but resets when I pull the batteries out and put them back in. I have another FS-1 or FT-1 with a broken battery holder around here somewhere, so I'll try to Frankenstein good bits together to see if I can get a working motorized SLR going.

The lenses are all in great shape, so I have great hopes for those.

3X 35mm Ilford Delta 3200, to have another go at a project that didn't come out too well a few weeks ago. I focused on the people looking at photos and paintings in an art gallery, but the lighting was quite low and the people mostly wore dark clothing so the paintings and photos weren't quite in focus and you couldn't really tell if the people were in focus. I'm also not that good at holding the camera (a ricoh 500gx) steady enough at 1/60. Some were done at 1/125 but the depth of field wasn't enough for both exhibits and people to be in focus.

I've decided to use one roll at 3200 and the other at 6400, juts to see what happens.

A slightly damaged Houghton-Butcher Commando from 1948, and an unnamed but probably German 13x18 tailboard camera with roller blind shutter and Rodenstock lens.

I recently bought a used Pentax KP so I can enjoy my collection of K mount lenses. So far I am pretty impressed with it. The sensor is definitely a step above my former 16mp cameras and the AF is improved as well. So far so good. I would recommend this camera, especially if you have some Pentax glass sitting around.

A Leica R7. So impressed have I been with the Summicron R 35 and 50mm, I have decided the R system will be my sole manual focus SLRs.

A wonderfully preserved Kodak Medalist I made during WW2, in 1944 (code EE in the lens). As such is almost sure that it was used by the US Navy or Army. And several 620 spools to respool 120 film in them and use the camera.

A mint FujiX100F from B&H for backup for the MP240 for an upcoming trip around the world. I almost went with a new Ricoh GR3 but the 35 FOV, amazing viewfinder and built in flash won me over to the X100F. I had the first one and loved it.

My Fujinon XF 16mm f2.8 R WR lens has arrived!

Unfortunately it is a cold, dark, rainy day today so I’ll wait until tomorrow to test drive this little beauty.

One thing I was not expecting to see on this lens is a label proudly stating:

Made in Philippines
Fabriqué aux Philippines

Not photo related, but I bought an engagement ring for my girlfriend (though I did fund its purchase in part by selling some unused photo gear).

Found this in a little antique shop in Grass Valley CA for 35.00 so I bought it and loaded a short roll of HP-5 to test and once we get some good weather I will test it and see if it needs to make a trip to NZ.

Retina I, haven't confirmed which model yet. Needs a cleaning

A single owner M42 Pentax kit with a SV, Super Tak 55/f1.8, Super Tak 200/f4 and Light Meter II, all with original hoods, cases, manuals and accessories.

Then I picked up a very clean S-M-C Tak 28/f3.5 with case and hood to go with it

Unfortunately it's all in the post at the moment, so pictures will have to wait...

It is a Retina I model 148. Great camera, one of my favorites. That Ektar lens does well. Shoot some color with it too.

At total impulse purchase last Tuesday, I stopped by Burlington Camera between Toronto and Hamilton to get some colour film developed. They have a well stocked used section of camera gear that's constantly churning. Well, I had my eye on something but it sold a few days before but something else way cooler caught my eye, a black Nikon F with an eye-level prism, with a 640 serial number putting it around January 1960 for being made. The price was a steal and I know I made off like a bandit.

So Let’s See What This Leads To! It can keep my Foton company. I can see Stereo getting more popular with a film revival. It really is Mind Blowing viewmaster beautiful. The cameras are common and cheap.

Black Olympus OM2n with 50/1.8 and 135/2.8

I guess I should have just held on to the similar set I had a few years ago.

Wow, wonderful. I've been considering buying a working stereo camera, 35mm, 120 (Sputnik) or even a large format from early XX Century. The main isue here is how to make something useable of the images. Buying also a visor, obviously, but maybe you need special double frames if you use slides. So maybe is easier to get some camera-visor sistem that uses paper copies, like the said Sputnik.

My X-T2 has suffered from melting sensor surround and stains on the sensor which I can't clean off; so, since my X-Pro2 and X100F get all the love anyway, I've just sprung for a full-spectrum conversion of the X-T2 to fix this staining and to let me have some fun with what is still a bloody good camera.

I’ve used wet plate 5x7 Stereo a lot and classic stereo cards are incredible done right. With the Colorist I’m going to work with it on a tripod with 0.8 direct positive film. I’m going to set these on bound glass for tests. The exact placement I know is critical. Thanks to the short run of mega popularity of stereo during films golden age means a Lot of gear is available cheap. Ha. As I sit and write I look at my collection and wonder about a Stereo Diana Camera!
