Recently picked up a user grade chrome Nikon F2a, the meter is super accurate and the shutter speeds are bang on along with an Ai converted Nikkor S.C. 50 f1.4 lens.

Since my Serenar 50mm f1.9 will not collapse on my Canon L1, I just got an Inustar-22 from Yuri at Fedka.com to use on it when I want to go low profile.

Olympus EM-10. I needed something with decent controls and a good eye-level finder that was small enough to fit in a SnapR 35, as a daily-carry camera when cycling; and this really plays to micro-4/3's strengths. Excellent handling, a great range of lenses, a good EVF, and a body that's very close in size to my digital Ricoh GR. I think I've found a permanent mount for my Panasonic 20mm f/1.7.

Olympus EM10 mark ii. Must be shifting last of the stock as prices are very good - just under £280 with £65 cashback. Previously had an EM5 and EM1 so I know what to expect. Need to reduce the weight of the gear I am using while still being able to use longer lenses occasionally.

Agfa Super Isolette in pretty much pristine condition (and serviced) - first roll out and all very good.

I bought an iGadgitz PT310 mini table top tripod.:

Click on thumb to see full aize pic.




Good: It's light, seems to be well-enough made for the box camera and folders I'll be using it with and is small enough to slip into the elasticated straps on the top of the Cullmann Ultralight Pro Maxima 120 bags I have, though i may have to put it inside the amazonbasics 'large' bag I have. It also has a circular spirit level. Has a ball and socket head with a quick lever-lock.

Not so good: The legs can only be closed or fully out and are not extendable, so no fiddling with the legs to get the thing level. The spirit level is hard to see when physically large (though quite light) cameras are used, such s box cameras. This lack of leg adjustment can be compensated by the easily-adjustable ball and socket head through a separate spirit level.

a beautifully complicated Goerz Ango (Anschütz) 9x12cm, made c.1908, and complete with 3 double plate holders.



As it looks as perfectly working, also several 9x12 film sheaths to be able to use the plate holders.

Picked up a Konica M-Hexanon 90mm!
I was having reservations after I purchased it after constantly finding reviews saying it back-focuses on digital bodies. Fortunately, this one focuses perfectly with my MP240!

Got this 1930 Zeiss Ikon Cocarette in a trade for copying a few old
120 6x9 negs from around 1935 that came in a negative film holder.
Like this...

I used a copy stand, a Micro Nikkor 55/3.5 and a little light box.
Pretty easy, really. Inverted and touched up in LR.
Apparently it was a USAF Marching band outfit in China in 1935.

These three guys are all packing cameras.
