I bought a metal shutter release to use with my autoknips 2 as the one I already had has a rather wide top bit that won't fit into the circle thing.

The new to me metal one, has a much narrower top bit.

But it still won't fit into the circle bit.

Do I have to use an ancient release cable that would've been out at the time the autoknips was, and if so, where the ruddy blink do I get it from?

I've always used R09 (although I've been developing only for a year), but I think I will try others, like Kodak XTOL. They say it's better for fine grain films, right?

55f2.8 Micro Nikkor for $78 from KEH for my Nikon F. It is listed in excellent condition and allows me to exploit an SLR's capabilities over my Leica's.

Adding to my small collection of old Nikkor non-Ai lenses, a very early production 10.5cm Nikkor-P in F mount. Not a tick mark but from the first run without them. Nine blade aperture, long aperture ring that covers the lens mount and marked Pat. Pend. Came with a matching hood, caps and bubble case.

Go, use 127 cameras, I've 5 of them and its an excellent format. There are the oldest small cameras to buy.
I'm reading about people spooling 35mm and 120 film maybe to shoot through the camera? Not sure yet. It arrived yesterday and appears to be in great shape, I'll clean it up and test for light leaks this weekend

My wife will want to have me committed when she finds out I just purchased another film camera: a Leica 3f Red Dial Self Timer with 50f3.5 Elmar. I have owned just about every model of film M's but have never owned a screw mount Leica before. In fact, I handled one once for about five minutes at Red Dot Camera in London.

I think it would be a great travel companion to my MP240. Everyone says shooting with one is like handling a precision instrument.

My 4th Jupiter 9 in the 4th mount.
My first one in black for Kiev 10 and Kiev 15 Bajonet mount.
#5 would be M42 mount but I do not miss it, because I have M39 to M42 adapter.

I need to update the Jupiter 9 family foto.

Kodak Bantam Flash

I received this Kodak Flash Bantam camera recently and now have two spools so I'll try the Fujifilm 400 film in it. Built very well and has a nice heft to it. Tiny. Seems to be working fine enough but we will see.

A Nikon 105mm f2 DC. Results stunning so far but yet to shoot a portrait with it.

I do all my own black and white developing at home.

I'll sum up since the beginning of the year. I'll likely not buy much else this year since I have everything I really need and really want ... famous last words.

- Polaroid SLR670x Ming Edition by MiNT ... It's essentially the ultimate Polaroid SX-70: new, modern controller board with a new sensor, calibrated for the 600 speed film as a baseline, with a plugin controller that allows auto operation for both ISO 100 and ISO 600 film, manual shutter speeds from 1/2000 to 1/2 sec, B and T long exposure settings, and X flash sync. The body cladding are lovely matte finish black metal instead of leather. Completely rebuilt and beautifully put together, it's a prize.

- A spare Polaroid SX-70 Accessory Kit. I have four SX-70 type cameras now, the kit has the tripod mount, close up lens and attachment holder, lens hood, a flash diffuser for FlashBars bulbs (not that I use them very often), and the remote release. I figured having two of these kits will solve the "using two cameras at the same time" as well as "what if I break something" problems.

- MiNT FlashBar 2 electronic flash unit for the SX-70s. It has full and low power modes to do both film speeds, and this new version includes faster cycling, a test button, and auto-off to minimize power consumption.

- Another SX-70 bag. It's a small fitted bag made by either A&A or Black Label Bag that fits the SX-70 with a separate interior pocket for either a spare pack of film or, for me, space to carry the flash unit and the manual controller unit. The bag is made of very nice canvas with leather trim and is nicely inexpensive at $35 apiece. I have one for each of the SX-70s now.

- Mini 2.5mm to PC flash synch cord, 18" long, and 10' long Male to Female PC flash sync extension cord. Useful for any flash sync needs.

- Polaroid Originals film ... of course. More will be purchased as the year progresses ... of course.

Obviously, I'm putting a lot of effort and money into doing instant film this year.

My New Plaubel Makina II Outfit by Nokton48, on Flickr

Alex in Moscow helped me find this one. Truly a 1930s beauty and it's on it's way here now from Germany.

After quite some time, I accidentally ran into a friend of mine recently and he revealed over a coffee that he was thinking of selling his Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.2 Version 1 and buy, in its place, the physically smaller Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f1.4. Given I happen to own the latter and had long had an interest in owning the first version of the Nokton 35mm we agreed reasonable terms of exchange (a suitable changeover price for his more expensive lens) that we were both happy with and, long story short, I ended up with his lens and he ended up with mine.

There is something about the first version of the Nokton 35mm f1.2 that I really like - its feeling in the hand is just right for me and I have never had an aversion to slightly larger lenses (it's all relative in any event when it comes to rangefinder lenses). The 2nd version is said to be slightly better optically but only by a whisker I fancy and I like the fact that the first version is one of the few that comes with a nice well designed lens hood - most Voigtlander lenses require a separate and quite expensive purchase if you want the original hood rather than an after market one.

So far, I am ecstatic and hope my friend is too given we both got exactly what we wanted out of the trade which seemed pure serendipity fiven how it arose.
