I picked up a black model Fuji X100S a few months ago and wanted a half case and thumbrest for it. The silver model I purchased on preorder got a Luigi halfcase with handgrip and I bought the original Lensmate thumbrest for it as well. I quickly picked up another Luigi halfcase in black on eBay from Luigi (it was old stock) and this past weekend happened on a used Lensmate X100 thumbrest. While the thumbrest will stand out a little (it is the silver model) on the black X100S, I have now a complete setup to my liking.

Went to a camera show yesterday and got out relatively cheap. Only bought a Kodak 28mm finder, which is offset to the left and completely covers the shutter dial on my M3. Serves me right for not bringing it with me.

I don't plan on shooting a lot of 28mm with the M3, but while my M8 is in the shop I wanted to be able to keep using my 7Artisans 28mm, which I haven't used very much yet.

Also bought a pro pack of Portra 160 in 35mm.

My HP 6500a printer/scanner died yesterday for the last time... I replaced it with an Epson XP-7100. It's a much better unit far as I can tell so far, much easier to set up and use. Much nicer scans too.

I just got this '77 F2AS from Irohas in Japan last week, along with a 28/2.8 Ai-S and an 85/1.4 Ai-S. It's my second F2AS. My first one was bought new in '78, when I was in high school. Summer jobs, dad money (he was a sucker for nice camera gear) and living in Japan made the purchase possible way back then. I sold it later when I was in the Navy.



Using it still feels like second-nature. One thing that surprised me is that it does NOT feel especially heavy. DSLRs with f/2.8 zooms feel heavy. It also feels more compact than I remember. This camera's meter works fine and there are no big issues. Compared to my original camera, this one's film advance feels a tiny bit rough, but my recollection after 40 years might be faulty. I want it to be as near-perfect as possible, so I'm in Sover Wong's long line, because I love the damn thing.

KER-CLACK!




Test shot with the 85. Yeah, 85/1.4 landscape shot. FP4+ with a-bit-too-warm Ilfosol-3.

A couple of German cameras, both bought in the same shop. A Welta Weltini (II) made c. 1938 and a Zeiss Ikon Box Tengor 54 made c.1934-1943.


What's unusual about this camera techincal details is that I've found no reference of any Weltini mounting a Steinheil Cassarit f2,8 lens. There are Steinheil Cassar f2,9 lenses in these cameras, acording to catalogues, but not this specific lens. Maybe someone swaped it at some point (after WW2?).

Kobalux 21mm f2.8, 3rd generation. Just got it and took a couple of quick test pics on the A7RII and the Leica back to back with the Voigtlander 21mm f4. Much less smearing on both cameras. Hoping it will be better about color shifts too.

Olympus OM-System S Zuiko 35-70mm f/4 and an Olympus OM-System E Zuiko AUTO-T 100mm f/2.8 for my Om-1, OM-1n, and OM10.

Plus 49mm and 72mm R72 filters to play around with some Rollei infrared.

Oh, and a dirty Mamiya C22. I wasn't expecting much and didn't pay much for the C22 but when it arrived I cleaned off the crud and dust, slapped an 80mm lens on it and ran a quick test roll of Arista through it. It fed fine and only had a small light leak from the old seals. I should have it up and running in a week or two (needs a bit more cleaning and I want to go over the feed mechanism) and hopefully with new leatherette. Not bad considering I really only bought it for the WLF......

An aparently working and quite afordable Ansco Memo, made c. 1929. One of the first 35mm cameras in the World, and probably the first one made in the US. And with a quite unusual shape and mechanism. Looks more a petrol lamp than a camera, to me.

Bought a Minolta X-700 with motor drive, 28mm f/2.8 and 50mm f/1.4.

I intended to flip it, but put a few test rolls through it tonight and it was a lot of fun (especially with the motor drive).

Looks like I might be testing it for a while longer. :P

Got a Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D and a couple lenses, in good working order. 6Mp DSLR.

And a Yashica 44LM that's nice, except for loose front lens board / focus mechanism. I my mind, I can fix it. Hope that works out, in reality.

Today at film photography fair near Barcelona I bought a pack of Fomapan 100 13x18 film sheets and a 1936 made Elmar f3.5 50mm for my 1938 Leica IIIb. At last I have it 100% Leitz. The Industar 50 it's a very good Elmar clone, but I had to complete the pack!

"New" leather case for my Leica II. I have a shallow sum-nosed case for the matching Nickel Elmar, but it doesn't fit my collapsable Summar. This case should do it.

Sony a7II and Sony 28-70 lens.
Adapters for Canon FD and Leica M mount lenses.
My Canon FD lenses work nicely on the a7II body.
B&H has sent me Leica M to Fuji X camera TWICE!
GRRRRRRRR!
And had the nerve to send me a survey for their Returns Department.
Someday I will get my rangefinder lenses on the Sony body.

I bought a couple of very cheap early SLR cameras, quite battered but still working KW Praktiflex probably made just post-WW2, about 1946-1948. The other one is a non working KMZ Zorki (aka Zorki-1) made in 1955.

A Fuji GF670. Had one before, sold it to finance another camera, regretted it and took the opportunity to buy another one.

It is a Knight 600 series. I checked it out and tested a few tubes from an old radio. At $10.00 I almost felt like I was stealing it. Now I can go through the couple hatboxes of tubes I have, if I can find them. I just about finished cleaning the house from top to bottom and put them somewhere, but where is the question!

Finally bought one of my dream cameras! It's a Hasselblad XPan w/45mm and in amazing shape. Only has 600 total shutter actuations, including the supposed 200 that are shot at the factory. It's been a long time since I've been truly excited by a camera, but I couldn't be happier and more inspired by this particular one.



Still looking for a 90mm, but all in good time. Already shot some rolls and having them developed currently. Can't wait to really put this cam through it's paces.

Ball s. I went into my favourite film camera store for an autofocus Nikkor 50mm f1.8 and a Helios 44, and came out with a mint Rolleiflex 2.8F.

He threw in the Helios 44 and a lens hood.

I hate myself.

Apart from that have a Rolleiflex 3.5F, the odd Minolta XD7, Hasselblad 500cm, a Topcon Super D and an Intrepid 5x4 large format (not the half of it but I am clearing them out, honest).

I do all my own black and white developing at home.
