Fuji GX680 Finder on Makiflex Standard by Nokton48, on Flickr


This may become one of my favorite Makiflex Viewfinders! I just bought this mint one in Japan for $85. Geoff Berliner likes his on his Makiflexes so I thought I would try it too. The view is unreversed and right side up, very bright and I can see the whole 9x9cm screen very sharply. The adjustable ocular is first rate, I can't ask for anything else. It is also the perfect size to mount of the top of the makiflex, and it looks cool!

Geoff machined a pile of metal plates he uses to make tintypes, cut out the center portion, and attached the finder with velcro. I like that, but I don't have a CNC milling machine.

Right now it is attached to the camera with four thin strips of Gorilla Tape LOL. OK for now but I want a more permanent arrangement.

Makina II German Advertisement by Nokton48, on Flickr


Mr. Binder in New York City (WIZCAM) has my new to me Plaubel Makina II, and he is working it over right now. He's worked on old Makinas for decades, and he has a lot of original Makina parts! The II is a bit smaller and more compact than the III and IIIR. Also a bit more stealthy in black finish. This is a Leica Quality 1930's era 6.5x9cm strut camera.

But they do have Adox CHS 100II, which is good to know. I have plenty of Efke PL100 in 6.5x9cm, and lots of Ilford FP4+ in 6.5x9cm, which is easy to get in the UK.

The shop www.lumiere-shop.de has Wephoto 6.5x9cm 100 ASA, which is good. They are on holiday until Febuary 2nd. I will probably order some of that at that time.

The dealer in Bulgaria has nine unopened boxes of Orwo NP20 (dated 1999) in 6.5x9, so I bought all of it. Outdated and -slightly- foggy but excellent results he claims (with extra exposure) when processed in Microphen. Anyway the price was very good. So we will see, that is 225 sheets. Total cost 37.5 cents per sheet.

Are there other German shops on the internet that stock (or order) 6.5x9cm B&W film? I need one that speaks English, and takes Visa, can't do bank transfers from here. Much too expensive to do and zero tracking, so not good for me. I need shops that take Paypal.

Maybe I will have to stick to Foma 200 in 120 rollfilm? No sheets anywhere?
I'm still looking.
Fotoimpex, that belongs to Adox. check YT for a video at a recent finnish photofair about new filmproduction(and difficulties). the kodak problem. some weeks ago they have already cut 120-film.

Maco EM film type S
Agfa APX 100 glass plates
scroll through. the other large ones must be cut down.
maybe Ars-Imago also has cut film.
NB: 400 asa 70mm film B+W!beside the Unperforated Ortho 17m.

70mm Agfa Aviphot 200 Rollei Supergrain by Nokton48, on Flickr
all of them are aviphot.. you mean Avipan 200 then. i think its Avipan 200S. S for soft. and 400S is the equivalent since 200 could be a bit overexposed. who knows. maco could give the answer. i asked a lot on other 70 film-thread. still some open questions.Adox should offer longroll 61.5mm film. its not 61mm right?
thats why the epson 800/850 filmholder was a failing construction. Am i right?

I corrected the town of Kern. Aarau.
btw: Some big Kern-idiot destroyed all lens-documents! except a tiny amount.
i still have 3200 Tmax 70mm. good to know to shoot 800. dont try reversal. will not work. useless to waste film. maco-direct has 400 asa-30.5m.

Makiflex Pecoflex Adapter 1 by Nokton48, on Flickr

Today I am tuning up the Makiflex to Pecoflex Adapter, on Makiflex Auto Body #2. Getting ready to take this out.

I've put together a kit of mostly Xenars to fully utilize the cameras. The shortest usuable seems to be about 210mm, so that one, plus the 240mm Xenar, and the 360mm Tele-Xenar. All original Plaubel Makiflex Auto stuff.

This rig is fun to use. There are plenty of camera movements in the front, and it's intuitive to use. Need a tripod.

Will be shooting 9x9cm B&W on 9x12cm format film.
