Semi-boring...A 940 Nm IR light for the darkroom so I can use the toy IR googles(which actually work very well) and a new center spindle from B&H for my 2 roll Paterson tank-can't find the center spindle anywhere.

I recently purchased a Voigtlander Focusing Brillant S on eBay and it is absolutely craptacular. The film counter and frame advance stop are inoperable, so I have to rely on the very thick, and hard to see through red window. The mirror is bright but in rough shape. It's not the easiest camera to focus.
I would have returned it... But, I bought it for the lens. And it's a winner. It is the model with the f/3.5 Heliar, and its a real beauty. It's not a super sharp modern look, but there is something about how the lens renders the relationship between the darks and lights that really makes the subject matter pop.
It was a bargain even though it's just a glorified box camera.

a '34 black paint iii, a very clean black 28 3.5f color skopar, & black voigtlander mini finder. I'd always been drawn to the iiig, but the diminutive iii, feels perfect in the hand. Although i got good photos with it & loved the Tessar, the rollei 35 always felt incredibly awkward. The iii will be my 'pocket' camera...since i shoot more medium & large format...but what a mechanical beauty.

I bought a single IXMOO on ebay, nos in box, and paid $45. shipped.
Ridiculous, but it was the least expensive new-ish one available. I'm now ready to bulk load.

I had one of them for a good while, it was a good little camera if a little slow to AF.

Billington Hadley Small from here in the classifieds. It arrived today and looks perfect for an M with 35/50/90 lenses. And if push came to shove it can also hold a Fuji X70 or 21mm.

Brofeta cases for a Super Speedex and Vito III. I realized that both were underutilized partially because I'd been shooting places with no-bag policies and neither camera has strap lugs for easy carrying.

I had a bit of money left over from gear sold last year and decided it made sense to spend it enabling more frequent use of current gear.

A second Panasonic G3 along with a 25mm Panasonic and the 12-32 pancake zoom, sold the kit lens for more than I paid for the previous G3 also.

Just blew a wad to get a mint used M10 with the Visoflex 020 finder. My cash stash will take some time to recover, but I LOVE the new Leica. It's what a digital M ought to be...

Stopped by a local camera repair place ( http://zackscamerarepair.com/) and this followed me home.





Fully serviced and ready to shoot. Very solid and precise feeling. The rangefinder patch is much higher contrast compared to any of my other folders. Gold circle for the patch with a somewhat darker blue viewfinder, reminds me of my Yashica finders.

Just bought this off what some call evilbay for Agfa Ambi Silette:

Click on the thumbnail



It's cleaner and shinier than the pic would suggest and seems to work well enough and all for less than £17 inc p+p!

Now, has anyone got a spare bubble-case for a 90mm color-telinear for an Ambi Silette?

Very long shot of course but if I can get onbe it won't matter what lens I've got on the camera I'll be able to swap it directly for either of the other two without faffing about.

PS. Thanks to new member BenjaminM for pointing me at it.

I found this on eBay. Pretty rare and famous shade for the first version of the Summilux 35 mm f/1.4. There are two types, the early one is the OLLUX and the later one is the 12522. On my very early Summilux 35mm f/1.4 v1 I only had a badly damaged 12522. I am quite happy now, I never believed to find this thing that matches my lens perfectly. A true collectors item.

Erik.

Thanks, impressed with it so far and it was a very good deal.

I was surprised the Ultron is slightly smaller than the Ultron in the Vitessa. I have a hood and filters for the Vitessa but they don't fit on the Vito III. Hopefully, I can put some film through it tomorrow.

Olympus OM Focusing Screen 1-3 (split image - matte type). $5 for the focusing screen and $5 for shipping. Still a bargain.

A bunch of Velvia from B&H, at 1/2 price because its expiration date is next month. I figure it'll be good for a while yet if kept in the freezer.

I just purchased a new Holga lens for my Nikon Df. I bought one earlier, and I know this sounds weird with it being a Holga, but the first lens was defective.

So, I got another one and it arrived just the other day. All is well....
