Camera Porn... Show us what you got!

I met an ebay seller yesterday who's photography at the moment consists of glamour shots for ebay sales... I thought I'd give it a go... Anyone else have some camera porn?

Does it have to be a RF or can it be any camera? I'm still waiting on my Bessa to arrive.

I think Luigi should make cases for fsu cameras. But then I might be the only person crazy enough to buy one.

If you want the camera porn around here, look at the Camera & Coffee sticky thread. More cameras there than you can shake a patterson tank at.

I know... I just rarely have coffee around when taking pictures of my cameras! Hey James, Not sure if pics of non-rangefinders would be appreciated... You could try & see if any feathers are ruffled?

Here's another... Next time I have to remmeber to get the smudges/dust off the viewfinder windows! This one is my Electro GT that had a going over by G'man...

I've heard the Bay I aux lenses are pretty crappy... What are your impressions? I've thought about picking up some for my Rolleicord, but I don't know...

Those are Yashica's telephoto extension. They're not very good for picture taking, but good to look at.

Here's a good looking auxillary lens for you ywenz... Wish it was still worth while shooting 110... I'd like to see what sort of quality this 1.7x Mutar has.

Peter, thanks. Hopefully nobody will get offended. I did take a quick picture just now of my one and only RF body. My pride and joy (because of the shape it is in and the fact that I was able to pick it up with the original manual and a box of pristine lenses and accessories), an old Argus C-44...

I do have two other RF's on the way now though. As much as I love my SLR's and DSLR's, there's just something about shooting with a RF that is pure fun.

Some of my non-RF porn includes a Kowa 77mm f/1.1 converted to f-mount...


A JML Optical 56mm f/1.2 with a Leica 39mm thread in an adapter I built so I can use it f-mount...


A Canon Lens XI 77mm f/1.1 I converted to f-mount...


A Canon 75mm f/1.3 Right Angle View t-mount...


A Kowa 55mm f/1.0 converted to f-mount...

if you make the long side about 850 to 900 you should be fine.

Camera Porrrrn....lenses

Here's a recent buy, a Summciron 50 f/2, and an interesting 90mm lens allegedly made in East Germany. Love the Summicron's hood. The 90mm lens was a surprise, only cost me $150.00; when I compared it to my Leica 35mm f2, it wasn't that far behind in sharpness and color quality/contrast.

Cheers,

Chris

Hey Mark, nice Zorki 4... Isn't the one with the raised outline to the rangefinder window a little unusual? I might be wrong, but I remember reading somewhere that it wasn't so common?

Nice shots everybody!!!

mine has the Tessar 2.8/50 lens - it is pin sharp and nicely contrasty - I was suprised how good it was. It's fun to use too. The gauge you can see is part of the built in meter, which is still working and accurate (!)

Not sure if you meant me or not Paul... If you did, thanks! I appreciate the compliment.

The lighting I used was all natural... I layed some black velvet over a step stool on the balcony & snapped away with my Rollei dt4000 on a tripod. Getting the exposure right so the chrome wasn't all blown out was a little difficult, but it seemed to work well for the most part.

Cheers!

I do use the Werra occasionally here's an example
