Nice lineup of cameras, Thomas. I'm rather partial to Tessars, myself, and I like the accompanying photos that you took with them. The flare from the uncoated lens imparts an ethereal air to the picture of the harpist.

Thank you, Murray!

The Tessars are also my favorite lens for MF. But the Heliar of my Bessa II and my Medalist II are also nice lenses.

I like the Tessars signature more that the Planar of my Rolleiflex 3.5 F (which I do not use very often).

That's a nice Mamiya Six Sjixxxy. I hadn't seen that model before. I wish I had that flash adapter. Have you used the flash you have mounted. I thought all were for bulb flash, not electronic. But then that whole lens assembly is different than any I have seen. How is it as a picture taker?

First, I have to replace old bellow.
I have use just two Lego wheels to put 120 film there
and two wood rails for re-size it to 60 mm. Also added a film pressure plate.


Finally life again after 113 years

That film back is really old school, I love it. Was this camera expensive?

It really difficult to use.
1. You have setup on tripod without back,
2. Install ground glass (I have adjusted old Zeiss ikon plate camera ground glass)
3 Focus and shift if need it (front lens can shift left/right)
4 re-move graund glass
5. Install film back
6. Sett aperture and shutter speed
6. Remove film protected shield
7. Shut
8. Install shield back
9. Wind the film (I counting rotation, 8 times -1st, next 3 = 2 1/2, rest 2 1/4 times)


I got this camera for 57$ on e-bay. I do some web search but it looks really rare, no really price available.
Find some information here:

Nice. Looks like the exact same camera. Mine has a little fogging of the finder and all shutter speeds are a little slow. Other than that it is a fantastic little camera. It is my EDC for now though I haven't figured how to shove it in my bag without scratching it (eventually).

Picked up this Seagull 203 a month ago. Shutter was sticky, lens elements were dirty, bellows were out of shape and the cover was missing



Shutter took two sessions to clean to get it to fire reliably again. Bellows folded back into shape, reskinned with some aki-asahi "lizard" composite.

Ran a roll of Fomapan 100 through it two weeks ago.



Still need to adjust the rangefinder a bit, but apart from that it's a pretty solid camera.

That is incredible! Nice going. I need to do some experiments with 35mm roll film for use with backs on 4x5 and 9x12. Looks like it might not be as hard as I originally thought.

Agfa Record III.
Picked it up three months ago. Had to clean the green goo out of the focus helical and the RF focus wheel was stuck too. All fixed now, still need to feed it some film.

That's two really nice cameras. I am surprised at how well the Seagull took that photo. Is it really that good or can I just not tell on the crappy monitor I have at work?
