    Thanks for the links, but Retinette is different from Retina: The Retinettes are the cost-down version of the Retinas as far as I know. They are more light-weight and without the rangefinder focusing system.

    The Retina Ia is also light and without the rangefinder focusing also (the Retina II made in the same time was the rangefinder version of the I)

    ALL of my cameras are "classics", more or less...

    Here's some of them, at least. First a 6.5x9cm KaWee Patent Etui, next a small segment of the cupboard where I keep my cameras when they're not in use.

    Hmmm - must be an old picture, there's a lot less space there now!

    I Think the third one is the same Nettar 515 I have.

    Also what exactly 'defines' classic, I consider classic (retro, vintage, whatever you call it) anything before the 70s.

    My co-worker when I mentioned "classic" said.
    1) Even my EOS-1 would be a classic, just a newer one.
    2) Classic? Oh you mean shoots film (because there are no digital classics)

    Yes, that's my Nettar. I can never remember the number, though...

    From left to right the cameras are:

    Balda Belfoca 6x9
    Voigtländer Bessa I 6x9
    Zeiss Ikon Nettar 6x4.5
    Welta Welti 35mm
    Daiichi Zenobia (I think)
    Voigtländer Perkeo

    I suppose the Gandolfi Traditional is a classic too, even if still in production?

    And the little plate cameras: http://www.bruraholo.no/Cameras/Voigt/Voigtlander.html

    Another one that would have been a sure classic if it weren't too new is the Carbon Infinity. And the Bessa-L too, I guess?

    Well has to be a Nettar 515 because there are two Nettars , the 515A and 515B , the A is a 6x4.5 and the B is a 6x9 (taller beast), and it's not a Super Ikonta as it does not have the coupled rangefinder on the side. So... I figured it has to be a 515 though the fun part is trying to figure out the number of lens/shutter combinations they had for the 515 especially around wartime.

    PS: I know what a Bessa L is, but I have no clue what a Carbon Infinity is.

    It's a 521...

    With a Tessar 75mm f:3.5, coated.

    PS: I know what a Bessa L is, but I have no clue what a Carbon Infinity is.
    The Carbon Infinity is this beast. Mine is no. 46 of about 60 in total...

    Sorry, friends. I am the culprit. The photos were in an old abandoned website of mine and I linked to it, since I had long ago cleaned them from my drive. On my website they are resized to fill the screen and I had forgotten how big the files were. It bothers me too, but I don't think I can resize them now. My apologies.

    To show I can resize photos, this one of my Asanuma King No. 1 I took tonight, after a thorough cleaning and building and installing a tripod adapter to take modern tripods.
