Grrr...my last roll shot with some pre-war Leica glass failed to come back from the lab. Second time they lost one of my rolls in as many months.

Erik, you're wringing some incredible sharpness out of this beauty.

Sad story, Rick. I don't know if it was color or black and white. When black and white, you should develop yourself. It is really easy and takes hardly any time.

I am happy too with the sharpness of the Elmar. I have this camera for many years, but didn't use it because of the internal haze inside the lens. The lens was sharp, but there was no contrast.

Finally I managed to take off (without damage) the frontal retaining ring, wich holds the front element. It was REALLY tight. There were two holes in it made at an earlier attempt to remove it. My repairman didn't dare to do it. With a piece of tape I then could pop uit the front element. The rest was easy.

Erik.

I just got off the phone with the shop, apparently the roll was running late because someone had filled out the envelope incorrectly. So they made prints. Should have some scans by tomorrow.

I've never dared to open up my 1946 Elmar to clean the inside of the front lens element when I still had it. I was slightlye less worried opening up a FED-50 to clean out the condensation.
I need to use my 1936 Elmar again one of these days, when I grow tired of the Xenon.

I will be photographing some Gothic/Fantasy/Steampunk/WW2 models this weekend, haven't decided on which lenses to take. Leaning towards my 1937 90mm f/4 Elmar for portraits.

Thanks Erik!

A lot of this roll the uncoated elements of my summar were showing their character. These were the few frames that weren't overtaken with flare

I know. Even the best shades don't help. I had the same problems with mine. Finally I found a fully coated one. Coating improves the performance of the Summar a lot and makes clear that it is an excellent lens, even by modern standards.

The uncoated Summar however has its charms, but it is not an universal lens.

it also doesnt help that my summar has the black painted flocking removed in parts because the paint just started flaking off.

In a lot of situations though I find my summar to be a very excellent performer. Very impressive how it does for something almost 80 years old.

Yes, absolutely. The Summar is great when the light is coming from behind the photographer. A good shade, like the black FLQOO, helps too. Not the SOOMP. Unfortunately the FLQOO is more expensive than the Summar itself.

In the past these numbers - contact numbers - were used for different sorts of flash bulbs. They are of no use anymore.

See an old manual if you want to know the exact details.

I can only recall that when using electronic flash you set "20" and 1/50.

The ring under the dial sets the flash-delay.

Thanks Michael, the Xenon is really starting to grow on me

Don't get your hopes up too much Johan. I don't know if this is a continuing trend yet.

Looking for a volunteer or two for a shoot at Fort St-Andries soon, while there is still some daylight left in the years

Muriel Wright.....right? Anne, the model, has got nothing to worry about as far as I can tell.


Next time I'll try something with a little less IR sensitivity I think.
