On my way to a camera show in Toronto I stopped in at an antique fair that I hit almost every weekend (but rarely find anything).

Ended up spending my camera show money at the fair instead on a really nice Rolleiflex 2.8F with Planar that was a fraction of the price it should have been. First negs are drying now and look great.

Still went to the show, bought some 120 film for it.

I just got this little beauty back from Frank Marshman / Camera Wiz. 1963 35/2 Summicron, Version 1 (Canada), with IROOA shade. Both the lens and hood belonged to my uncle, who was a professional photographer, and he had both since new. It likely hadn't been serviced in about 35 years, and all the lenses had haze. Frank transformed it into a beautiful, crystal-clear and butter-smooth lens. Can't wait to put it to good use!

DSC01430 by Nokton48, on Flickr

A 135mm F2 B&L Super Cinephor 70mm theatrical movie projection lens. Figuring out now how to mount it on my Plaubel Makiflex Standard camera.

This camera takes 9x9cm images on 4x5" or 9x12cm film. Lens weighs about ten pounds

This beauty - the Vivitar 135mm f2.8 close focusing. Found it cheaply and already love it. Its review suggests it's a cracker-jack lens and its beginning to look that way to me too. Though not officially designated a Vivitar Series 1 lens it preceded them and is of similar quality. Built by Komine for Vivitar. It has a Minolta mount and which perhaps explains its low price and I plan to use it on an M4/3 with adapter.

I've just bought this Praktica FX2 from the Real Camera Company who sold it on ebay:




(Click on the pic to see it full-sized).


I paid just under 23. It looks even cleaner/newer than in the pic and it works well.

I'll be taking it to a sort of 'junk shop' near me which has an MTL5 and pentacon 50mm f1.8 lens and trying that lens out. Depending on how bright the screen is indoors at f1.8 and f2.8, I could go for either that lens or a czj tessar f2.8. I'll also look through the finder at f4 to see if it's bright enough to get czj f3.5 135mm and 35mm lenses later.

Second-hand X-Pro 2 to complement my X-T2. It's the only reasonable way to get the hybrid finder of my X100T without the less-than-inspiring focal length.

Does the 5222 have remjet that needs to be removed?

Just bought a Wisner Traditional 4x5 camera with a Schneider Symmar-S 210 f5.6. Need to start monkeying about with it on the weekends. It's quite a lovely camera, build -wise and aesthetically. Has a gouge or two near the tripod mount but I don't care.

1. 28mm f/3.5 Konica Hexanon to use on an Autoreflex T2 body currently being CLA'd
2. Canon 35mm f/2.8 screwmount with 35 mm Canon shoemount viewfinder to use with Leica IIIf & II D bodies (and perhaps on Leica M bodies with adapter)

Is there a "what were you just given thread"?

The guy who gave me the Leicas showed up with a Nikkormat FS and three lenses. I tried to give it back telling him it was sort of rare, but he declined...saying he wouldn't go through the trouble of selling it, so he may as well let me have it.

The lenses were 50 f2, 135 3.5, and a 200 f4

A colourful, fully working (yet with haze in the lenses) Kodak No.3 Folding Pocket from 1911. The only camera you could see being used on board the Titanic, or at least I think so




https://flic.kr/p/P3iHsf




The shutter is a Bausch & Lomb Automat, and the lens a Goerz Doppel-Anastigmat Syntor f.6,8 120mm, made in 1910.

No. It has an anti-halation backing with a lubricant that is rather like soap but both are removed in a normal water presoak.

Good to know. So a presoak is required? I don't generally pre-soak so I'm curious if I need to perform the step. I've started loading my own film so this one intrigues me.

It's not required but I like to do it with all films to remove anti-halation and swell the emulsion to more quickly uptake devloper. The data sheet for DXN5222 states there is a lubricant added to the film to allow it to pass through motion picture gates at high speed while keeping static down and encouraging smooth transport. That is enough for me to want to remove it before adding developer. At least that's the theory. Whatever your method, pick one that works, with one developer, and stick with it.

A couple of cool surplus shoulder bags from Varusteleka, a company in Finland.
https://www.varusteleka.com/en/group/bags/1081
One, a French rifle magazine bag, the perfect man-purse, the other a replacement for a bag I bought at Colonel Bubbies 30 years ago and wore out.

It came with an unexpected Lensmate folding thumb rest. A pleasant little surprise.
