Thanks, I had already found your report on your restoration of the Mercury. It was a great help in opening it up and cleaning out the globs of grease and film chips.

Haven't taken off or re-glued the leather yet. I have Bison Kit for this, it remains somewhat rubbery once dry.

Good to hear I was a help, Rick. Mine is unfortunately sounding like it's about to come apart again. That catch lever may be working it's way out of it's mounting hole. I'll have to run another roll of film through it to see if it's still functioning okay.

Been wanting a Rollei 35S to join my Rollei 35 and pushed the button yesterday. Perfect briefcase camera.

I just had the 35S CLA'd by Krikor Maralian so I decided to snap a family portrait.

Only the 35S and the Singapore Rollei 35 work. The German model and the 35 LED are non-working props that would cost to much to repair, but they're still cool to have around.

I loved my Werra, but the wind was a bit wrong. I gave it to a collector in the end.

Haven't got a good shot of my latest scale focus beauty yet (at least not without me attached to it), and it's not a 35mm either I'm afraid.

Why, it was so cold, even the smoke froze in your pipe! Nice cam, Rick.

Neat! I hope it works as nice as it looks. :-)

My Robot II and Robot Star 50 have returned from being serviced now. They look and feel great now, shutter and drive working reliably through the range. Got a special Schneider 30mm f/5.6 for them too ... Curious little thing, you remove the lens mount and bolt it to the camera to use it. Made for surveillance work.

Have to do some photos...

Your PH-324's look pretty beat up like mine, Archive59.
Do yours still have the Army data tags on them? Or any other markings?

I'm afraid none of the three PH-324 in my possession have tags or other army markings unless you count the remains of green paint under the slapped on black paint. I think you've mentioned before that you are not prepared to pay the silly prices demanded for a camera with all or some of the original markings, and I have to agree. I was quite keen to get this one because it has brass metal work unlike the other ones that have 'white' metal under the black paint. Amusingly the seller seemed to claim that this was the camera that took that famous photograph at Iwo Jima. I assume he meant the same type, but he was wrong with that anyway. It seemed to keep the price down rather than elevate it as he no doubt intended. It has a very smooth shutter at least. The third PH-324 I have has been covered with thick leather over the Bakelite body. It seems to me that so many of these cameras were brought back into the civilian world by people who wanted to hide their history. I also have a silver civilian model with the military shutter fitted.
There are some more photographs of Kodak 35 on my tumblr page archive59dottumblr.com.

Cheers,
Mark

Thanks Mark,

I've found someone who replicates nomenclature plates for military vehicles and other hardware. He's working on creating a couple of tags for my PH-324s and one for my Combat Graphic.

Just did this last night:
Blue reptile leather piece, Tandy leather skiver, 3M adhersive transfer tape, and Excel knife.
It was a pain to thin the leather from 1.3mm down to ~0.5mm (who knows what it really is). First time haha.

Gosh that is pretty. What is it, exactly?


Also - I have a Yashica M with a busted rangefinder, so does that count as a scale-focus camera?

Looks like a Vito B. The small veiwfinder version was manufactured from around 1953 through 1957. I have just aquired a similar version with the f2.8 lens. The Color Scopar lens was well regarded and the build quality and finish is excellent. I'll be trying mine out very soon.

Perkeo II + story

I found this one few years ago in a flea market.
It was sitting unfold on a table and from quite a distance I recognized the typical voigtländer door and I hurried up to get a closer look...actually I was dreaming of a bessa II with the APO Lanthar...but still, can´t complain and it´s much more pocketable and the skopar is a nice lens, I should use it more!

The shade and a yellow filter were an easy find on the bay and costed more than the camera itself..

Shot with a crown graphic on expired polaroid type 54 film:

Gosh, those Kodac Retinas look very similar to what I consider my first camera. Here's a picture of it that my sister down in Australia sent me.
