Since the glitch that's been preventing me from uploading images is fixed, I'll see what my Zeiss Ikon Netter can do (with its Blik rangefinder).

Well, this got me going to finally to a CLA on my Agfa Isolette (CLA is stretching it - my apologies to those who can really do a CLA on a lens). Shutter seemed OK but, as is often the case with these, the focus ring was stuck. After a day soaking in lighter fluid I was able to separate the first and second elements using the "2 hose clamp" method. Will try to calibrate the focus tomorrow.

Could have used the 2x3 Graphic, but that seemed like cheating.

Is there a separate gallery set up for this?

No, there is not a seperate gallery. Should there be?

I'm not sure. I just thought it would be nice to have them all in the same place.

Its a good question Steve. I have sent a PM to David Goldberg and he is checking with Sean about it.

I just shot a roll of film through my new Franka Solida II with a Xenar lens. I was very pleased with the results. The shutter was dead on and the uncoupled rangefinder was accurate down to three feet. I only shot ten pictures and all ten turned out fine.

I want to enter the MF Folding camera contest. I have never uploaded any pictures to APUG. If I upload several pictures, do I just mention in the description which picture is meant for the contest? How will the judges find the pictures?

Will there be a separate gallery for this contest? If no gallery, maybe a list of links for all those who want to view all the submissions?

Who is judging the pictures? When will it be judged?

Frank, there's no contest involved, no judging of any sort. The idea is to simply showcase what can be done with an "obsolete" type of camera of this particular genre, coupled with the natural inventiveness of the users.

We don't know yet. I have asked one of the moderators for guidence on gallery postings. We are awaiting word from Sean about it. As soon as the guidence is received, I will post it here in the thread.

As I said above, we are waiting on guidance for the gallery postings. We have asked that participants post whichever photo they feel is their best one for the entry.

That being said, you should certainly feel free to upload any of your photos to the APUG galleries any time. Nothing wrong with getting started now. If you want to note that it was taken during the MF Folder project, that's fine too. Various other members have done very similar things.

Thanks for participating Frank.

Way to go Moose and thanks for being the first. A lovely image it is too.

Here's mine (http://www.apug.org/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=19905&cat=2). Taken on a 6x9 Bessa I, hand-held, exposure and focus guesstimated, no meter or focusing aid.

Just got back from a week on the beach in Mexico, where I had great fun seeing people wander over whenever I took a pic with the Speedex.

I put this image in the monthly assignment gallery, but someone has already asked me (very politely) to remove it since that's for something else. Do we have a separate gallery for these folder images or should they just be put in the general gallery?

First roll through my Franka II with the Xenar lens. The uncoupled rangefinder turned out to be right on. Somehow this camera just feels right; better than others I have owned. I think it is the front door that folds down instead of to the side. That and the small size.

I circled this sundial half a dozen times before deciding on this angle.

Kodak 400NC film and a negative scan.

Hal, we don't have a seperate Gallery. I posted mine in the Standard Gallery and put a link to it in this thread. That's one way of doing it. The other way is to attach the shot in this thread like you have done. Either way works.

Thanks for participating.

OK, here is my poor effort. I got an Agfa Isolette folder in a camera swap with Whitey Morange, have been using it like crazy....sorry for the bad
negative scan.

Let's go ahead and post our shots in this thread. There are two ways to do it. Either attach your scan to a reply in this thread or post it in you gallery and provide a link here in the thread like this (http://www.apug.org/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=19905&cat=2).
