Here are some shots taken with my newly aquired Rollei 35 40/3.5 which I got for Christmas.

I have to say that I'm really pleased with it. It fits very neatly into a pocket and I have been carrying around constantly since I got it. The image quality seems pretty good to. The only fault is an optomistic meter which I have to set 1 stop slower using the ASA dial and even then you have to make sure the camera is pointing down to mid tone to get nailed exposures.

LOL- Just for the record, mine is of the 1831 built London Bridge. It was dismantled and shipped to Arizona in the 1960's.
Ruby Monkey, That Voigtlander 25mm Snapshot-Skopar does a really nice job. I like the tonal range.

There is some really nice photography from these scale focus cams. Now I'm really wanting that Rollei 35. rjbuzzclick's excellent photo of the cadi doesn't help. I like the processing, too.

Hey Everyone,

These are some really great pics! rjbuzzclick, great shot of the caddy; it had me looking up info on the Rollei 35.

I am new to the scale focus crowd. Here are some shots from my newly acquired Minolta Hi-Matic C.

Testing the self timer on an XA-2 I had found at a local thrift store. I sold it, thinking scale focus camera's were too hit and miss, but have since found a very nice XA with the rangefinder and am finding it to be not really much of an advantage. I think I'm spending too much time squinting through the finder, fussing over minutia and not focusing on essential ambiance and mood.

Cindy,

I swear that we were stopped at a red light on the access road! I would never take pictures while driving.

patois has revived this thread, so here is one of my scale focus cameras with a Medis Rangefinder. The rangefinder was under $10 including shipping on Ebay. I can use it with 5 of my cameras.

Great shots, folks: just goes to show that a scale focus camera in the right hands can offer some impressive results. Before I learned how to take decent pictures, I was drawn to the Rollei 35Ts, but not confident enough in my skilz to get good results. Now Im going back to that point, looking a Rollei, and excited to try out my new/used Nikonos V on land as well as under water!
