    Found a beautiful Olympus 35SP at a swap meet for $20 but it had a stuck shutter. It cleaned up very easily and now works fine.

    I've been fixing old Linhof Technika bellows this week with PlastiDip and they seem to be lightproof again.

    I recently picked up a Canon 100mm 3.5 LTM lens that was in bad shape from Adorama for a decent price for the condition. It turns out the lubricant had migrated all over the place.

    I spent a few hours figuring out how to take it apart and clean each surface of the glass which was impacted. It looks like the lubricant actually stripped the coating off of one of the surface - and I've got a bunch of dust in it now introduced in the cleaning process - but other than that it looks good. Looking through the lens, neither is visible. A flashlight reveals the issues but it looks like they may not impact the image quality as I can't see any impact in the ground glass.

    I like these Canon LTM lenses. Almost all of them have been relatively simple to work on and have cleaned up nicely.

    For the last few days I've been replacing the light seals on my RB67.
    Next on the list, I have two busted Polaroid 250s, the front standard of a 195, the back of a 350, and a few other bits and pieces. Let's see how many working cameras I can cobble together.

    Used windshield repair resin to fill a nice chip on the 37mm fisheye for my RZ.
    Unjammed the focus/lens mechanism on a fuji GA645.

    I love working on cameras

    Resin repair on a lens... that sounds scary to do haha! Id have shaky hands attempting that.

    I got rid of that pesky clicking on the aperture ring on my 50/1.7 Minolta lens... oh, wait... *D'OH!!!*

    Man, that little ball bearing was tiny. It's probably no more than two feet away from me right now, but nowhere in sight.

    Bummer. Can't tell you how many times I have been in that situation myself (usually its tiny screws)!

    Done that. Found the bearing, but the little spring ended up mangled beyond repair.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...
