V1 is a nice camera. Surprisingly good at the typical day to day snapshots.

We just sold my wifeís V1 kit last winter. She wanted something with a tilt screen... you know for selfies.

V1 held up great against my M8 on our Chicago trip a few years back. We really only shared the V1 photos and videos... that good.

Olympus Pen S, 3cm f/2.8 version. Half frame, aka the true "classic" APS-C format, before the proprietary cartridges, and before digital crop sensors! Going to experiment with some "Pen-o-ramas".

This is pretty much what I read: it's the little camera that tried! I'm looking forward to seeing what it can do, and then perhaps investing in an FT-1 adapter and a few AF-S lenses for long ranging!

I just bought an 8mm f/2.8 Rokinon fisheye for my Fuji X mirrorless camera. However, someone stole if off my front porch before I could retrieve it. The U.S. Post Office and eBay were no help to me.

Too many things - DJI Mavic Pro drone for work, a replacement 24-70/2.8 Nikon lens (also for work), plus a Camcraft Z-Housing (modified Visoflex III by Norman Goldberg with a fixed pellicle mirror), 125mm f/2.5 Hektor lens for Visoflex, 400mm f/5.6 Telyt with Televit for Visoflex, plus a used Gitzo tripod, Manfrotto tripod head for work, a set of replacement spike feet for my Bogen 3058 tripod (20 years of solid work finally took its toll), and I think that’s about it!

A couple of very old and quite unusual Kodaks:


-the most tiny camera ever made by Kodak, the 00 Cartridge Premo. It used 35mm film way before the commercial Leicas, in 1916. But this 35mm film way like a miniature 120 format, without perforations and with back paper. The camera works, but lacks one of the spools, so it could be difficult (but not impossible) to take pictures with it again.






-a No.1 Panoram Kodak, that still works, more or less.

hello all, my first post.
I’ve just picked up a quite nice YashicaMat LM for a price I am very happy with. Next on my list is a Ricoh 519 which I think is the model my father had and I last saw/used in 1981 or 1982. Some darn fool threw it out the camera in the cleanup of dad’s stuff. seeking info on the ricoh rangefinder models is how I found the forum, so it’s not all bad, but still, grrr!

It's amazing how so many people cannot see the collector value/usability in their parent's cameras. Op shops, garage sales, sunday markets and even antique centres can and often do, come up with real bargains. Maybe you could try these (assuming you've been down the ebay route).
Good Luck,
David

Bought a Kodak Medalist II, unfortunately with shutter release problems. Have it CLA at the moment.

thanks David, I have been searching ebay for a while. The 519 seems uncommon. Yep will try some op shops too and thereís a weekly flea market near us. I think I may apply some percussive maintenance to my brotherís nostrils for tossing the camera out. :-)
