A 1951 made Zeiss Ikon Contax S, "small d" version. One of the first pentaprism SLR in the World.


https://flic.kr/p/HPoEMy

Sadly it's shutter curtains don't work properly (although the shutter itself does work). I supose I would have to change them, or more specifically, find someone with the spertise to do it, as I don't dare to.

there's something appealing in the design of those early Contax S/D/Pentacon SLRs! but I guess they are troublesome to use and unreliable (never had one myself). wish its re-done as kickstarter project one day, with modern controls and materials.

An Exakta VX IIa produced in 1958-1960. As with most of GDR (DDR) cameras exported into the USA in this period, it's clearly marked as "GERMANY USSR OCCUPIED". The pentaprism head looks more modern than the usual models fitted to the VX IIa's

I've had Nikons, a huge number of Pentax K-mount types, and random others, but through it all I had never tried any of the original S line of true "Pentax" cameras. On a whim a couple of weeks ago I picked up a rather beat up and dirty H3v (SV) for a song. Cleaned it up for well over 2 hours (I wish I'd taken a "before" photo) and now it's purring happily (except for the 1/1 thru 1/8 speeds which will need an adjustment but for now it's fine to not use them).
The moral here is that shooting with this thing must be the most sublime feeling I've ever gotten from any SLR, perhaps any camera... In two short weeks this thing has become, without a doubt, one of my favorite cameras, period. Easily in the top-3. I only wish I'd tried one sooner.

My last Ihagee, an Exakta VX from 1955-56 sold to the US (it's a VX, not a Varex).


https://flic.kr/p/25VHwC9


An interesting and tender detail about this camera bought online is that there's the name of a former owner. Maybe the only one, maybe one of several owners. I love this detail

Nikon U2 w/ AF 50mm f/1.4D. Supposed to be a cheap AE AF SLR camera with some flexibility. Tiny like the Nikon D40.

Yashima OSANON Digital 750



It is not a DSLR, digital describes the way shutter speed is shown in the view finder. Red digital numbers showing the time in seconds from about 4 down to .001 for the shortest time with is 1/1000s.

It is a very rare camera, never heard of it before I got this good looking one which is fully working.

It is one of the very few brands which tried Auto Exposure for M42.

Similar like Pentax with the ES series or Fujica on the ST-901 they added an additional control to the lens to tell the electronic the selected aperture. I do not know if Pentax SMC lenses can be used on this body, but I doubt it.

It has electronic controlled Copal shutter with Auto exposure mode. It has manual mode too. As on Yashica TL electro AX in manual mode exposure meter is turned off. The display in the finder just displays the selected shutter speed. There are no markings on the speed dial.

There is almost no information about the camera in the internet, I found one blog in Japanese with images. The writer has the same unanswered questions I have after playing with the camera for some hours.

Shooting with the original lens in Auto mode works fine once you realize it does open aperture measurement with exposure lock. So if you change the aperture while shutter is half pressed time does not change. Release shutter and half press it again.

Using "normal" automatic lenses is no fun. There are controls to set the max aperture and the used aperture. You have to enter the max aperture once. Then set the used aperture on the lens and on the body every time you change aperture.

I'm not surprised that this was the only camera Yashima made before they went bankrupt.







The camera is working fine and I'm looking forward to results of the first roll.

Hannes
