Yesterday came in the mail a nice tiny heavy shiny Konica III, and already lurking on a cute Ricoh 300.
Before that, i'll try to let the Konica settle in. But the Ricoh is sooo sexy...
Help !

Found a Minox EC that looked lonely on the thrift store shelf, so I picked it up (and a sealed container with two rolls of film) for $20.

Nope, Sorry. This place ain't the place to be if you want help to stop buying cameras. Take me for example, I had a Nikon F301 and a Ricoh 500GX and wasn't looking to get any more. I now have 13 cameras, plus lenses, lens hoods, filters and bags that I didn't know I was going to buy when I joined. And do you know what? There wasn't one single word of sympathy from anyone here! lol.

My newest rule: I won't buy a camera unless I've made at least 36 photos with the one I've previously bought (unless, of course, I just have to have it) .

A Kodak 50mm f/1.6 Cine-Anastigmat. For a fantastic price. It had a tiny amount of fungus and the whole thing needed to be cleaned and lubed. Finished that today and now I have an amazing fast portrait lens for my 16mm cameras, both Kodak Model K as well as Filmos.
Oh yeah, an Angenieux 10mm f/1.8 retrofocus is on the way too. Hopefully that fits on the turret with the 25mm f/1.4 Ektar.

A nice lady was looking for a good home for her father's cameras;
-Agfa Billy Record
-K.W. Etui in 6x9 with a Tessar lens
-Unknown 9x12 with "Unofocal" Doppel-Anastigmat
An extinction meter was included in the set as well.



And she also gave me a book about the history of the local waterways.

I cleaned the lenses on all the cameras and freed up the shutter on the Agfa. Also found that one of my Rollex Roll film Backs fits on the 9x12.
Time to burn some film

Grey Leica M-E (Typ 220) that has had a replacement sensor and Leica service at some time. It's the only way I'm going to shoot rangefinders again.

Reasonably happy with mine, with a similar career, that I bought in 2016. But it still doesn't quite compare to my first love, the Epson R-D1 though.

Nice rule, I will try to obey it. But lately I'm specially fond of large format cameras, which most of the time are bulkier and more expensive than 35mm, and film holders generally have only 1 or 2 sheets. Damn!!!

U can haz Grafmatics!

I bought this NIB a few years ago (an amazing find). It's intended for my Pacemaker Speed Graphic. I don't think it'd look proper on my Sinar F. I've got more well-used Grafmatics to go through before touching this one.

I bought an Ensign Selfix 20 model 5, with f4.5 Ensar lens in a Compur shutter, and leather case for £31 +£4.99 P+P. After a bit of brown boot polish on the case, black boot polish on the leather of the body and lens cleaning fluid on the glass and metal surfaces it looks about 20 years old rather than 80 years old.

Unfortunately the shutter almost gets stuck half-way when fired on 1 second and 1/2 second and is slow on 1/5 and 1/10, possibly also on 1/25 but I'm hoping that it's just lack of use. If not but it gives good results I may get it serviced.

I'll add pics when I've found a way of posting them without the risk of mucky adverts showing up.

EDIT:

I've just added a pic to this post, but I wanted to also put it in the "show us your 120 folder" thread and not only can't I add it to that one, it's gone from this one. It was below the kb and pixel sizes, I did it using the "Manage Attachments" button and "Opened the file" and "uploaded it", so I must be doing something wrong.

This just arrived, a bit rough in its modification but the interesting part of it is that it is rangefinder coupled. The RF window is at the bottom of the camera and the secondary window is just below the main VF. Turning the camera to a portrait orientation allows for a horizontal RF dual image and also gives better access to the focus knob on the lens without my hand being in the way of the RF.

I've got those all in the original chrome. Yours look utterly stunning, but I shall keep mine as they are!

Unfortunately the shutter doesn't seem to be working properly. I'm not seeing much of any difference between the speed settings. B works though.

I'll take some test shots tomorrow to see if the exposure is changing the the shutter speed.

Estate sale today, Canon IIB rangefinder body for $8. Yeah, the sale was so massive that some things were unmarked, and, some people got lucky, depending on who they approached for pricing.


The body is not bad, overall. Someone has used a foreign object to make impressions on the shutter. It fires, but not up to speed.

Thank you! Original chrome is timeless, I had to wait over a year to get my kit back from overhaul, and re-paint so you're making a solid choice.
