A Yashicamat 124, normally I shoot 5x4, and 6x17 but it makes a change to shoot the square format. I find that regarless of the camera I always shoot to fit the frame, but it's fun getting back into 6x6 after a break of over 20 years.

Back in the 70's I did some film processing & printing for a couple of friends, it was commercial work (to me) and I was amazed at the quality of their 35mm negatives and prints.
First was a Varex 1000 Exacta, with a Pancolor lens, ID-11 1+2 and just breathe taking, but even better was the Kiev IVa f2 50mm Jupiter, so I'd expect vey high quality from your Cotax IIa :D

My new FED III, with an Industar 61. It makes beuatiful pictures indoors in dim light. But I just recently got a film back from development, and I got the nasty suspicion that the shutter curtain travels uneven over the film. Can it be checked and fixed?

I'm shooting Ilford Delta 400, with my Canon EF and FD 35 f2 Thorium lens, and a Canon F1N AE with FD 1.8 85mm lens loaded with Fuji Provia 400 X.

Pentax K100 and Ilford XP2 Super 400. Shooting at 200 and happy with results. The film outdated in 2003. I have another 100 foot roll waiting to go when this one ends.

Rollei retro 100 ISO with a TLR "Old Standard" (621) Rolleiflex ; results not bad...

Canon F-1n w/50mm f1.4 SSC. With AE finder, similar in many ways to my Minolta XK, especially the shutter sound.

Olympus OM 2S, 85mm f2 and 21mm f2. Tri-X. I know this isn't too old, however being film, it is older than about 99% of what is being captured today. Might have to break out the Voigtlander RF, Billy Clack, Olympus Chrome Six or Semi-leotax next week. Bill Barber

Just picked up a Zorki-3... way impressed with Diopter control and removable back!! I usually buy old range finders just for the sake of collecting them. But.. This little gem is going to get a nice work out!! I'm thinking about machining my Kodalux-L Light meter to fit on this one! I have 7 screw mount range finders but this one seems to have been done right!
