Lucked out, a bargain KEH body off the auction site, cleaned up nicely and has turned out to be a gem.



Best,

The F, circa 1963, bought it used in 1974. Lens is a "Modern" Nikkor 50 mm f1.8 AiS Pancake with a Marumi lens protect
and a snubnose hood from a Voigtlander 40 mm lens. A nice Compact kit.

Bump on top of the prism was a swing I took at another photographer who kept pushing me and pushing me to get a shot
at some government event. Finally I swung at him with my camera but only hit his rig, ergo the bump on the prism.

Very pleasantly surprised with this little Nikon. Got it for £3 (without lens).

The 21 works fine - mirror is up of course and though the rear element is close, very close, to the shutter, so far no problem. Looks good too!
Since the accessory is no longer available, a do-it-yourself version can be made using a Nikon F or F2 waist-level finder as the base and making a top piece from wood or whatever and adding a cold shoe to hold the viewfinder.
I was going to make one for myself until I decided that my Sigma 12~24 slapped on a cheap autofocus body worked just as well, and I didn't bother getting the CV 12 .

Picked this up on ebay...



Not bad for 7 bucks. Gave it a clean, replaced the seals and mirror cushion.
Now I just need to find an appropriate lens to go with it.

Here's one I've had (not working) for ages.


Unfortunately the shutter is completely stuffed and the cost of repairs just isn't worth it. Still I love the look of these in black.

Pentax MZ-5 by F4ronnie, on Flickr

My latest addition. It's waiting on a new brass gear for the mirror motor and the pop up flash doesn't pop up.

When I get some time I'll have a go at fixing the motor but I may just remove the broken fash bits to stop them migrating !

I got this the other day at a yard sale, have never had one, and haven't shot an SLR since the 1980s. Came with an F2.8 55mm macro lens. Meter still works.

Picked up a bulk lot of SLRs on the bay. Worked out at about 5 bucks per camera. This was the pride of the fleet.

Picked this up on the weekend. Needs a clean up and the meter doesn't seem to be working. Looks like a good project for the summer...

My favorite Pentax. I have one with a K version 50 1.4 just to use this lens. I've also had the KX and K2 variants but found the viewfinders too busy. There's something nice about just having a proper needle and brackets that's now sadly lost. I have a Japan K1000 also but the meter is a couple of stops off. The K1000 was my first proper camera I bought as a boy back in late '76 as I remember. I wish I'd kept it but it went in favor of an AE1 in around '81. This one is sat here on my shelf just to remind me where my GAS started!
I like this thread a lot as all the cameras I used to dream about using back in the 70's and 80's are all here!
The black Minolta Srt 101 that's in an earlier post is a beauty.
Sadly the reality is that these older cameras are too difficult for me to focus reliably. I've just ordered a slide on magnifier to try with the KM I have and the ME that Johan is sending me for Christmas. I may get away with the Fujica he's also sending as they used to have proper silvered prisms like the Leicaflex.
I was out with my newly acquired M6 and Planar yesterday but found focus slow and frustrating so it looks like I'm going to have to stick with the F6 and F100 for my main film cameras.
Nothing stopping my playing with the old school stuff though

Hey John,

Have you looked into the whole diopter scene? I now have diopters on ALL my old film cameras. About four years ago I was getting really frustrated with my M6, missing focus, never seeing it sharp enough, and finally went and tried some diopters, and BAM!!, I was back in business. The problem with this eyesight thing is it comes on slowly as you age. Barely perceptible until everything is just soft.

So I've got diopters on my Nikon F, Nikon F3HP, Nikon FM2n, Canon TX, Canon A-1, and all three of my Leica M bodies (including the digital M-E). And now I can focus them just like I did back in the 1970's & 1980's when my eyes were young.

Picked up a Rolleiflex off of eBay last month (haven't had one in many years), and was checking it out, and couldn't get it to focus sharply, even with the little magnifier popped up. Thought the camera was defective. Then by chance I happened to put a diopter lens over the pop up magnifier, and snap, everything was in sharp focus.

It's a bummer that our eyes change as we age, just glad there are corrective lenses so we can keep on shooting.

Best,
-Tim
