    Thank You! I've not been able to spend much time at all this year on photography but, all but three of the camera's in the display see occasional use
    The three that are not used have not been repaired yet.

    Sorry to hear that. Hopefully you will be able to replace it.

    The red bellows camera in my photo's is a View II. I agree with the other's about the one in the other photo, I think it is a Century Graphic

    Is there a good wild fire?
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    The answer would be a definite NO. Catastrophic would be a better word for it.

    Probably - renewal through fire is both natural and one of the best ways of ensuring a healthy forest ecosystem.

    In this case though, "good" is definitely "good in the long term".

    Contaflex

    I discovered the Contaflex Alpha at a garage sale. Sent it for CLA and a spool. Found the Tele & WA 1 at a time seperately. Found the Contina III at a thrift store. Alpha and Contina both take the lenses. Contina marked in the viewfinder so no seperate finder needed. Have cases for both and a case for the aux. lenses NIB.

    Actually not that hard to collect these. It's the Pro Zeiss 35 system that is hard to find and dear when you do.

    The lens on the Graphic is a cold war Jena 105 Tessar.

    Got the Ikoflex for selling a coworker's grandfather's camera estate on the net.

    Found the 6X4.5 at a garage sale. Love that little folder.

    Traded the old Zeiss from a Dutch collector in flight training at a local Air Force Base.

    Got the Icarette (I have nearly 100 127 vest pockets of various makes and models) for a song from a well known internet auction site.

    The Super Ikonta 533/16 is for sale now.

    It's the quest, not the having.

    Hey, puderse, to whom did you send your Alpha for CLA? I have a Contaflex Beta that needs one.

    This was before the internet and all I remember was that I found someone through Shutterbug. Before the internet was when the earth was flat!
